Associated Builders and Contractors New Jersey Apprenticeship Education and Training Fund (ABC-NJ AETF) announced Aug. 2 that it was approved to add an apprenticeship trade in truck driver-heavy by the U.S. Department of Labor.
ABC-NJ AETF now offers 19 total trades in its apprenticeship program.
“This is the seventh apprenticeable trade we’ve added in 2022,” said Samantha DeAlmeida, president of ABC-NJ and executive director of ABC-NJ AETF. “The demand to grow and train the next generation in the construction industry is an immediate necessity, and we will continue to provide opportunities to those looking to start their career path.”
This new program was created following a recent decision by the New Jersey Department of Labor to enforce truck driving as an apprenticeable trade.
ABC-NJ works closely with both the state and federal labor departments to ensure its members have access to a wide range of programs and opportunities.
“From a member standpoint, ABC-NJ has provided the support and guidance necessary to run a successful business, especially when it comes to changing regulations,” said DeAlmeida. “The addition of new programs to bring on apprentices through on the job training and learning is just one way ABC-NJ continues to add value to its members.”
