Apprenticeships: Construction Technologies

The CFK Apprenticeship Program (Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC, and Carpentry) is a 4-year program that offers students a different approach to traditional college instruction.  It combines paid On-the-Job Training (40 hours/week year-around) with a local employer and hands-on class instruction in the evenings on campus (5 hours/week in the Fall/Spring). This schedule appeals to many students who do not want to spend time in a classroom.  Our program also includes:
