Apprenticeship Readiness Programs (ARPs)
PREPARING FOR THE BUILDING TRADES
During these difficult times, NABTU is proud to support the American School Counselor Association.
Increase the number of candidates for apprenticeships across all trades; to increase the diversity of apprenticeship candidates by recruiting women, communities of color and veterans.
Increase the retention rate among apprentices by providing them with a deeper understanding of both the industry and the role of trade unions in construction.
Certified by a number of State Education Departments, NABTU’s MC3 is bringing true construction education back into high schools. NABTU knows the importance of introducing, connecting and engaging young people early to harness a lifetime dedication to our trades.
WE INTRODUCE: NABTU’s MC3 introduces students to the different building trades and teaches them the skills necessary to successfully apply for a registered apprenticeship, debt-free education.
WE CONNECT: NABTU’s MC3 connects two high-quality education systems: America’s secondary schools and the Building Trades registered apprenticeship programs.
WE ENGAGE: NABTU’s MC3 engages students with industry and labor leaders through state-of-the-art curriculum.
Building Trades ARPs teach the Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3), a standardized, comprehensive, 120-hour construction course designed to help young people and transitioning adults choose and succeed in apprenticeship programs that are appropriate for them.
The MC3 curriculum is taught face-to-face, but it is delivered via NABTU’s Online Learning Management System.
NABTU’s world-class apprenticeship and training system provides eager students with an opportunity to earn a competitive salary and benefits. Participants receive state-of-the-art, technologically advanced, industry-sanctioned training from the construction industry’s highest trained instructors and leave with invaluable skills to set your students up for success. With the concept of “Earn-while-you-learn,” your students earn money while receiving college credit towards their degree.
