GET A CONSTRUCTION JOB!
Most people are surprised to learn that the very first thing NW College of Construction does for its applicants is to get them a job in the building industry. Once dispatched to a contractor, you will report to work at a construction job site as a registered apprentice in a craft of your choosing such as masonry or carpentry.
NW College of Construction combines paid on-the-job training (apprenticeship) with classroom instruction. And the education is free; the construction industry pays for your tuition and books (exceptions apply in the HVAC and Sheet Metal programs).
