The Construction Craft Laborers Apprenticeship Program
A Distinct Advantage
Unlike most other construction trade apprenticeship programs, the Construction Craft Laborers’(CCL) program is designed to provide apprentices with 160 hours of training before they ever set foot on a job site. To become eligible for employment and on-the-job training, the apprentice much complete the program’s initial classroom and hands-on training session. It is during this initial session that the apprentice receives training in basic construction skills, safety awareness, and work ethics.
Since safety and production go hand in hand in today’s construction industry, the West Virginia Laborers’ JACT believes this unique approach provides a distinct advantage for both the apprentice and the union contractor.
