The Monterey Bay Collaborative’s pre-apprenticeship program begins with “Boot Camp,” two weeks of testing, screening, and intense preparation to ensure that participants have sufficient reading and math skills, soft skills, and physical fitness to enter employment in the Construction field. Adult schools will provide remedial instruction in reading and math during and after the preparation phase of the program.
Participants who move forward into the 144-hour pre-apprenticeship training program provided by the Monterey/Santa Cruz Building and Construction Trades Council will learn the basics of construction work and understand the importance of the various building trades, what they do, and how they do it. The training phase of the program prepares participants for work in their trade of choice.
Immediately after the pre-apprenticeship program, participants undertake career readiness instruction and schedule their post-graduation interviews with apprenticeship programs and potential employers, beginning the placement phase of the program. The Building and Construction Trades Council will work with program graduates to provide temporary jobs until employment or apprenticeship.
Funding for the program is provided through Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
