BUILDING CAREERS FOR NEW YORK CITY'S NEXT GENERATION OF TRAINED AND SKILLED CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONALS
PRE-APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Construction Skills offers training and direct entry access to youth and adult New York City residents. Each year, Construction Skills recruits and trains one cycle of New York City public high school seniors for entry into the unionized building and construction trades via the pathway of apprenticeship.

In 2015, Construction Skills expanded its services to provide pre-apprenticeship training and direct entry access to adult residents of New York City.

Direct Entry simply exempts qualified candidates from the General Recruitment, however, candidates must meet any and all entrance requirements.
