IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD…
The apprenticeship programs at NW College of Construction combine paid on-the-job training with classroom instruction. The first thing that the college does for applicants to the apprenticeship program is place them in a job with a construction contractor (Training Agent). Yes, the college finds a construction job for you.
Once hired by a Training Agent, your status changes from Applicant to Registered Apprentice, making you eligible to enroll as a student at the college and pursue the formal education associated with the construction craft of your choice.
