Classes Continue Full Speed Ahead!


Here at ABC, apprenticeship training is in full swing! Classes started last September, and the Shop/Training Lab at the Chapter facility has been busy with hands-on training during all our trade classes. While it is important that apprentices learn the theory of their trade and the “how’s and why’s,” it has been our main goal–while expanding our building and hiring full-time instructors–to increase hands-on education opportunities in every apprenticeship class. I would encourage you to check out our training facility if you are in the building and see first-hand what our classes have been learning.

Another Successful Start to Apprenticeship Classes

Fall is a great time of the year! Not only does the fall bring crisp, cool weather, but the season also begins a new school year. ABC Keystone is excited that another year of apprenticeship classes has begun, and this year, we are educating 350 apprentices. The addition of four full-time apprenticeship instructors allows us to continue to enhance the quality of training for our apprentices and for their companies.

Building Careers at ABC: Apprenticeship Update

ABC Keystone Facility

In October, ABC Keystone celebrated Careers in Construction Month, dedicated to the many paths available for pursuing opportunities in our great industry. Earlier in November, the Chapter celebrated National Apprenticeship Week. These celebrations of construction careers continue, as every week, apprentices enter the Chapter’s training facility to learn from their instructors the many facets of their trades, each of them striving to build their own skills and futures.
