Through ApprenticeshipNC, a North Carolina Community College program, CT Wilson Construction provides four years of invaluable, on-the-job (OTJ), hands-on training and 432 hours of concurrent classroom instruction in house as part of our full apprenticeship program. Providing the program on site allows us to offer the program directly to our staff, rather than having to coordinate with a participating community college. This reduces the impact to our program due to instructor shortages, funding limitations, or lack of interested participants. Program scheduling is managed internally and each course is designed to develop competencies in numerous work processes including forming, framing, finishing, specialties, safety and general skills. Upon the completion of this apprenticeship program, participants will receive accredited designations that will prepare them for careers as craftsmen, foremen, or superintendents. This program is generally geared toward high school graduates interested in obtaining skills for a successful career in the construction industry, but is open to recent community college or trade school graduates and experienced workers. Special benefits are also offered to Veterans enrolled in the program.
Our pre-apprenticeship program incorporates similar learning objectives, but at a much smaller scale. The pre-apprenticeship program includes 20 hours of OTJ training and participants will finish the course with a 10 hour OSHA certification at minimum. High school students age 16 and over are eligible to participate. To see if you qualify for either of these opportunities, please contact us.
While attending school, seasonal positions are available for students interested in seeking real-world experience to supplement their education. Openings coincide with academic intermissions and offer a wide variety of training in various positions within the company. Exposure to different roles and on-the-job (OTJ) training offers participants industry insight from an alternative perspective which further improves opportunities for expedient job placement upon graduation. CT Wilson Construction seeks intern candidates in various fields of study.
