Description

Welcome to the 2018 Central Illinois Introduction to the Building Trades Apprenticeships and Careers Day registration. The intent of this event is to provide as much information to High School students, parents, administrators, teachers, and counselors about construction apprenticeships and how to go about getting started if interested.

Please select either the morning session 8:30am-12:30pm or the afternoon session 12:00pm-3:30pm. This will be an open type event, each school may arrive and depart anytime during the session or overlap the sessions if need be. Plan for at least 2 hours for students to participate in the activities. This will be a "hands-on" event with many activities related to the trades. Each trade will have activities designed to give the students an idea of what each trade specializes in, along with information about each apprenticeship program. Please encourage the students to wear appropriate attire, including appropriate footwear. Parents, school administrators, and school board members are encouraged to attend as well. Arrival and parking instructions will be sent by email the week before the event. There will be door prizes and incentives to encourage student participation in the activities.
