Careers in Construction

Statistics on the need for a trained workforce are overwhelming — in the United States, there will be 6.1 million jobs in the construction industry by 2021 and 1.5 million craft professionals will be needed to fill them. Skilled craft positions remain the hardest job to fill in the U.S.

At ABC of Iowa we are working to train more apprentices than ever before to help close the skills gap. As the largest apprenticeship organization in Iowa, each year we typically train roughly 1,500 apprentices across our three campuses in Grimes, Hiawatha and Davenport.
