WELCOME BACK! | September 2023

At ABC Keystone, we train the next generation of craft professionals utilizing a combination of classroom and hands-on training in our 31,000 sq. ft. education center. We are the “Voice of Construction” for today’s merit shop construction industry.

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 course of their study—offering the most effective way for a contractor to ensure a highly trained and successful workforce.

In the fall of 2023, the Chapter will offer roofing apprenticeship classes for the first time. The roofing apprenticeship program is geared toward aspiring construction professionals seeking to learn essential roofing skills in a specialized program. During their first year, apprentices will attend classes at the ABC Keystone facility in Manheim, PA. At the conclusion of the roofing apprenticeship program, apprentices will receive their journeyman credentials from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.

Over the year, students will focus on OSHA 10,
aerial lift, and rough terrain certification. Apprentices
will also be trained in the following modules:

• Intro to Roofing
• Roofing Safety
• Drawings in Roofing
• Intro to Steep-Slope Roofing
• Intro to Low-Slope Roofing
• Substrates, Decks, and Roof Insulation
• Sheet Metal in Roofing
