Emily Griffith Technical College: Construction Pre-Apprenticeship

Construction Pre-Apprenticeship

Are you a high school senior? Do you like working with your hands and building things? If you are interested in working in construction, but unsure which area you prefer, this apprenticeship might be right for you. 

The Construction Pre-Apprenticeship program will be an opportunity for high school seniors to gain exposure, experience, and hands-on learning in multiple trades including but not limited to:

  • Carpentry
  • Electrical
  • HVAC
  • Flooring
  • Welding

Through hands-on learning in the classroom and work-based learning opportunities such as job shadows, site tours, and guest lectures with established industry partners, you will be supported through the semester-long program. You may choose to enroll in either part-time morning or part-time afternoon. There will also be an all-female cohort offered. Located at the Emily Griffith Branch Campus which hosts the College of Trades, Industries and Professional Studies, you will be immersed in our multiple construction environments.

There are four likely outcomes for completion of the Construction Pre-Apprenticeship program:

  • Acceptance to a US Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship with an Emily Griffith Registered Partner
  • Admittance to an Emily Griffith Trades program
  • Job offer for entry-level employment from a trades partner
  • Transfer your earned credits to a 2yr or 4yr partner institution

I’m interested and want to know more!
