By: Cindy DeWire, Director of Apprenticeship, ABC Keystone

November 13-19, 2022, we celebrated National Apprenticeship Week. During NAW, we celebrate the workers of America — the best in the world — and lift up the importance of apprenticeship programs across America.

Cynthia DeWire, ABC Keystone’s Director of Apprenticeship visited the electrical and plumbing construction classes at Lancaster Career & Technology Center, Brownstown campus. This was a great opportunity for Cindy to educate students about their opportunities after graduation in June 2023. ABC Keystone’s apprenticeship programs are a great way for graduates to continue their education. Keystone offers an articulation agreement that credits students with one year of Related Training Instruction (RTI hours) if they complete the ABC application process. Electrical and plumbing CTC students are already co-oping with companies and getting hands-on training. Other students are exploring their options upon graduation and enrolling in an apprenticeship program or continuing their education at Thaddeus Stevens. Cindy commended the students for taking the time to explore their options and making the best decision for them and their future goals.

Our commitment to workforce development enables ABC Keystone contractors to employ a highly skilled workforce, trained by the best to be the best. They receive comprehensive training over the tenure of their study—offering the most effective way for a contractor to ensure a highly trained and successful workforce.
