All Construction Posts
Considering heading back to school to train for a career in the construction trades?
You’re probably looking at which trades are most in demand so you can be sure your educational investment will pay off with a steady, well-paid job.
You’re also probably looking to build a diverse set of skills, so you’ll be eligible for several different kinds of employment after graduation (keeping your options open).
One of the smartest ways to fulfill the above criteria is to select a “combined” pre-apprenticeship training program. You’ll learn skills from two different trades that are often paired together on the job. This means double the technical knowledge, and double the job opportunities.
With the high demand for workers in today's construction world, being a genuinely skilled “jack-of-all-trades” can really maximize your earning potential. Construction sites are full of specialists: carpenters, plumbers, and other types of craft workers who have mastered a particular skillset - but they can’t necessarily switch roles and perform tasks from another skill area.
