Support Mid Coast Construction Academy
For many decades, construction companies have valued apprenticeships for recruiting, developing, and retaining a skilled workforce. Apprenticeship programs combine on-the-job learning with related instruction in technical areas to produce qualified, highly-productive employees for construction jobs requiring precision and safety.
Mid Coast Construction Academy is a partnership program between location businesses, community leaders, local school districts, and Association of Builders and Contractors Mid Coast Chapter. These organizations identified a growing need in the region for skilled plumbers and electricians. In an effort to bring skilled workers into this in-demand industry, they developed the MCA Apprenticeship Program.
This program is dependent on the participation of businesses willing to offer apprenticeship programs for our students. This partnership is a win-win for the students and the employers as the students gain valuable on-the-job training, and the employers gain potential long-term employers trained not only in their field, but with supplemental classroom time reinforcing proper work habits, adherence to industry standards, and ethics.
Please consider becoming a business partner or sponsor as we work towards building a strong workforce for our region.

In the Mid Coast Region, there is a critical shortage of skilled labor that is projected to grow over the next decade. Trained plumbers and electricians enjoy one of the most stable employment futures in the workforce and licensed plumbers and electricians experience a current average starting salary of $23 per hour in our area. Mid Coast Construction Academy is proud to partner with local businesses, school districts, and individuals as we address this issue through education and career development.
