In partnership with Liuna Local 183, 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. They mix, pour and spread materials such as, concrete and asphalt.
They may assist with demolition, remove rubble and other debris from a site and operate various power tools, machines and other equipment as directed.
Construction Craft Workers work 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 tunnelling.
