March 31st, 2017 kicked off the Pre Apprenticeship Program made possible by the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati and ACI. This program, held at ACI lasts for six weeks, running Monday through Friday from 7:30am-12:00pm and is lead by ACI Education Director, Travis Baudendistel. Over the course, students will be working with our instructors on obtaining their OSHA 10 Certification, NCCER Basic Safety classes, as well as developing and honing their construction math skills.
