America's Resource for On-the-Job Training



Apprenticeship is the original 4-year degree!

The apprenticeship programs at NW College of Construction combine paid on-the-job training with classroom instruction. The first thing that the college does for applicants to the apprenticeship program is place them in a job with a construction contractor (Training Agent). Yes, the college finds a construction job for you.

Once hired by a Training Agent, your status changes from Applicant to Registered Apprentice, making you eligible to enroll as a student at the college and pursue the formal education associated with the construction craft of your choice.


And the education is FREE;

The construction industry pays for your tuition and books (exceptions apply in the HVAC and Sheet Metal programs). Apprentices receive a paycheck, hands-on career training in the craft of their choice, a free education, and upon completion, apprentices receive nationally recognized industry certification as a master craftsperson (Journey Worker).

NW College of Construction provides its students with a practical foundation from which to launch their career or even start their own construction business.
