Become An Apprentice


With an apprenticeship, you start with a job and build a career. Simply put, a contractor hires you, and then you enroll in the ABC Central Ohio Apprenticeship Program. Over the next three to five years, you will learn everything you need – through in-class and on-the-job training – to strive in all aspects of your chosen trade.

Once you start working, everyday on the job is a learning experience. Instead of being stuck in a class for four years, you can learn by doing – all while getting paid!


Training would not be complete without focusing on things like First Aid, CPR and OSHA regulations that will enhance what you learn in your other classes and on the job.

The ABC Apprenticeship Program is certified by the state’s Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards. Just like a college degree, you will earn a certification that you can take with you your whole life.


When you complete your apprenticeship, that does not mean your relationship with ABC Central Ohio. We will continue to be here to help. Just ask.
