Our local industry-led Building Industry Association has a pre-apprenticeship program to help (non-union) apprenticeships get going. Their website is www.biahawaii.org. Also, our Hawaii Carpenter's Union is opening a pre-apprenticeship academy next month in the Ewa plain area of Oahu, which is where most of the projected growth on the island is projected. Our community colleges often have free classes to study for the test, but in some cases the potential students don't have $100 for the study materials--that is one area in which there needs to be some filling in of the gaps. In our state, all the community colleges are under one leadership, so that helps in ensuring some uniformity among all the 7 campuses. The other construction pre-apprenticeship program is at our federal detention center! There is also a culinary program, but it is not an official program.

I'd love to know what others are doing.

I hear Polk Comm. College, in Florida, has a really good apprenticeship program for current maintenance employees who need to enhance proficiency and receive their certification, through classroom and on the job training gives. The partnership with the Polk Manufacturing Assoc. and the college was was developed to increase the skills of the current workforce to meet the need for electrical and maintenance mechanics. The college was also able to secure grants to cover up to 50% of training costs.

Attached below is a link I came across on the apprenticeship program.

Job Corps has an abundance of preapprentice programs for youth between the ages of 16 and 24. Many union and some non-union programs are offered. There is no cost to trainees.

Visit jobcorps.gov to investigate America's best kept secret.
