What exactly is apprenticeship?
The San Diego Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Apprenticeship Program is a state and federally recognized construction training program. What makes apprenticeship unique is that it combines paid on-the-job training and work experience with formal classroom instruction.
Apprentices are employed by a company where you receive hands on training and attend class, typically at night, to receive your theory and technical training.
All classes are affiliated with Chabot College. You receive college credits while training and tuition is free for apprentices.
Apprentices receive regular pay increases as they advance through the three to five year program, and family medical and detail benefits are provided as well. After successfully completing this program, you'll enter the work force as a state and federally recognized crafts person in your chosen field.
