Learn a trade. Build a Career.

At Skilled trades of West Alabama we wanted to give technicians working in the field better opportunities to advance in their field. With pressures of needing to work during the day to earn money but the desire to be the best at what you do we decided to develop a program working around the schedules and lives of the working technician. We have teamed up with some of the best local contractors in West Alabama to offer a certified Apprenticeship Program and Pre-Apprenticeship Program (Jump Start) for our community.

(Jump Start) Program
