Construction Craft Skilled Laborers work in a high-performance industry. To succeed in this industry you will need to learn competencies in managing and understanding resources, information, technology, systems, and interpersonal relations. The MTECH Construction Craft Skilled Laborer Apprenticeship Program will help you learn to prepare sites, use tools, run machinery, and use materials with a focus on safety.

This Apprenticeship Program is for students who have employment with a construction firm that is a member of the Associated General Contractors of Utah. Students learn on the job with their employer and attend classes taught by industry professionals to learn theory and hands-on application. This training is held four weeks a year, for two years.

Upon completion of this apprenticeship program, you will receive a nationally recognized Construction Craft Skilled Laborer Journeyman Certificate from the Department of Labor / Office of Apprenticeship.
