Is Construction for Me?

Do you enjoy seeing a job through from start to finish? Have you always liked working with your hands or doing DIY projects around the house? An apprenticeship in construction offers the opportunity to build a solid foundation for a successful career in a field of your choice. There will always be a need for skilled trades. Currently, Utah construction companies are facing a shortage of skilled workers to keep up with the industry demand. Through apprenticeships, construction companies are filling this gap by creating a pipeline of workers with specialized skills.

If a career in construction interests you, consider the benefits of apprenticeship. You will gain related classroom instruction, on-the-job training and increases in wages as you gain higher-level skills. Upon completion, you will receive industry recognized credentials, licensure if required and a nationally recognized certification from the U.S. Department of Labor.
