NEW Construction Trades Pre-apprenticeship Program

Edmonds College launched the Construction Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program to fill a critical labor shortage identified by industry partner, Sound Transit, and provide skills training to our local community members at no cost. Successful completion of this program leads to a certificate in our Construction pre-Apprenticeship Program. The program includes math in the trades, blueprint reading and drawing, health and safety, work readiness, industry awareness, tool training, construction basics, basic electrical and basic plumbing. Students will also create a capstone project that will demonstrate the link between theory and practice and skills acquired throughout the program.
