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.
In the middle of the pandemic, Skilled Trades of West Alabama was opened in September, 2020 to meet the growing demand for trained craftsmen. In less than a year, the program has seen exceptional growth. To date, there are 49 apprenticeships in place and Jump Start has completed three classes with at least four more scheduled for the remainder of 2021. By the end of the year, an estimated 125 employable students will graduate from Jump Start.
