Apprenticeship Readiness Program
To qualify for direct entry through an Apprenticeship Readiness Program, the candidate must have successfully completed the North American Building Trades Union (NABTU) Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3) 120-hour coursework. This course prepares individuals to get a jump start into construction trade apprenticeships and is conducted by a certified MC3 Instructor. Apprenticeship Readiness Programs are sponsored by the State and Local Building Trades Councils, Training Coordinators, Contractors, and JATCs in partnership with local community groups, workforce development boards and schools- both community colleges and secondary schools. Completion of this program will allow the candidate to enter the program with 6-month credit. The credit includes both OJT hours and Related Instruction hours. The applicant must meet all the same requirements necessary for regular entry into the apprenticeship program plus the MC3 completion certificate.
