Specialty: Graduates of a specialty series will be prepared to enter an apprenticeship program or other construction jobs. Apprenticeship programs take 4 to 5 years. Apprentices work in their chosen field under the supervision of an experienced (journey-level) worker. Wages typically start at $10-$15/hour plus benefits, and wages increase as they progress through the apprenticeship program. Apprentices also take classes, which are often paid for by their employer or union. Apprentices earn credits towards an Associate of Applied Science degree at CCBC called Construction Craft Professional. They also receive a credential from the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) upon completion of their apprenticeship program.

Journey-level workers may earn $20-$30/hour or more, plus benefits. They may also become managers, business owners, inspectors or instructors for their construction trade.
