Construction Apprenticeship
Readiness Training for Construction Workers

Workers at a construction site.

The Construction Apprenticeship Readiness Program training is an 8-week (180 hours) program that prepares participants for union apprenticeship programs or employment in the trades. Some of the hands-on skills to be taught include cabinet making, cement masonry, green technologies, HVAC, plumbing, surveying, and weatherization. 

Participants are trained on Los Angeles County/Orange Counties Buildings & Construction Trades Council AFL-CIO’s nationally-recognized Multi-Craft Curriculum (MC3) and receive three industry-recognized certificates: Building Trades Multi-Craft Curriculum (MC3), 10-hour OSHA Certification and CPR/First Aid Training Certification. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion from Long Beach City College.

Orientations will be held in Building O-2 on the LAC campus.
