Home » 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. 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.

This program is eligible for Career Advance Colorado. That could mean zero-cost to you. Learn more.
