ABC Maine to Launch the Building Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Program

Come grow with Hebert Construction! Our apprenticeship program is in partnership with Associated Builders and Contractors of Maine and registered with the Maine Department of Labor. We are hiring inexperienced individuals and will be providing training through hands-on experience as well as classes through the community college system. This program defines a clear path to advancement and provides mentorship along the way.

Why train as an apprentice?

Apprenticeship is an “Earn While you Learn” model, involving on the job training and related classroom training. Here are a few of the many benefits of training to be an apprentice with an ABC Maine member business:

  • Classroom training. Expert instructors teach you theory, safety, and skilled trade fundamentals in a controlled environment.
  • On-the-job training. You’ll get your hands dirty (literally), apply your knowledge and skills and learn by doing.
  • No student loans. Currently, the average student debt in Maine is $33,352 and 182,900 student borrowers live in Maine.
  • Employment. You will earn while you learn.
  • Career potential. Apprenticeship can take you in many career directions.
  • Build your professional network. Our members are some of the most dedicated construction professionals in New England.
  • Nationally Recognized Curriculum. The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) is a national foundation backed by ABC National which provides the “Contren Learning Series” modules used in the classroom training of apprentices and the certification of instructors.
