Construction Craft Worker Program
A Construction Craft Worker works on a wide variety of structures such as residential, commercial, and industrial buildings, as well as hydroelectric dams, roadways, bridges, and railways. With experience, Construction Craft Workers who complete additional training may specialize in many different areas of construction. This can include operating off-road vehicles, drilling, and blasting, diving, and tunneling.
The Construction Craft Worker (CCW) Apprenticeship is an extremely versatile program that offers the trainee the capacity to work in a variety of sectors and construction fields. Our program covers a broad base of skills including form setting, scaffolding, and concrete placement skills. Some of the tasks completed by a CCW trainee include erecting and dismantling concrete forms, scaffolding, ramps, catwalks, shoring, and barricades required at construction sites. In addition, they may mix, pour and spread materials such as concrete and asphalt. They may also assist with demolition, removal of rubble and other debris from a site and may operate various power tools, machines, and other equipment as directed.
Key attributes for workers in this trade are mechanical aptitude, manual dexterity, and an ability to perform hard physical work. Organizational, leadership, and blueprint reading skills are an asset for anyone wanting to progress in this trade.
This Apprenticeship has two (2) in-class levels which are eight (8) weeks in length and is a Red Seal Trade. Apprentices will be required to complete their Level 2 training.
January 15, 2024 to March 8, 2024.
