We initiated our apprenticeship program in 1976, celebrating the first graduating class in 1980.
From the first class of 43 apprentices in 1980, to the Class of 2020’s 313 graduates, ABC of Iowa has graduated a total of 4,436 apprentices.
Among this year’s graduates, ABC honored four with the Outstanding Graduate Award. The Outstanding Graduate Award is given to the exceptional apprentice in each trade. Each of these graduates was nominated by an instructor based on attendance, attitude, effort, grades, participation and for going above and beyond.
The Board of Trustees select one graduate from all of the instructor’s nominations to represent each trade.
