Earn while you Learn
ABC of Iowa Apprenticeship and Training Trust strives to build partnerships with Iowa High Schools to make career and technical education a priority and viable option for high school graduates.
Job opportunities in the construction field are endless for students and don't require a traditional 2 or 4 year degree. Instead, these high-tech, high-stakes, huge earning-potential careers encourage students to earn while they learn through an accredited and DOL recognized Apprenticeship Training Program like ABC of Iowa's.
By the end of 2017, the state of Iowa will require over 155,000 skilled construction workers to fill the labor need of the state. Instead of racking up large amounts of debt by going to a traditional college for 2-4 years, students can help close this gap by completing an Apprenticeship Program.
There are many possible ways in which a high school may work with ABC of Iowa Apprenticeship and Training Trust. Below are a few suggestions.
