TP Mechanical and the Ohio Valley Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) were excited to host tri-state high school counselors this morning at our training facility. We spoke to them about our apprenticeship programs and career paths, as well as earning potential in the construction industry, so they can help educate students considering careers in construction.
Our companies feel it is important to educate counselors because they are helping the next generation of workers discover the best option for them after high school. With the decline in young workers in the construction industry, these learning opportunities are critical to the growth potential and sustainability of our industry.
TP Mechanical offers a four-year, state-certified apprenticeship program. Our apprenticeship programs all consist of a minimum of 8,000 on-the-job training hours and 576 hours of classroom learning over the course of the 4 years. We also offer a wide variety of classes outside the core required apprenticeship classes to help you broaden your skills and challenge yourself.
