Successful completion leads to a Construction Pre-apprenticeship Program (CAP) badge.
CAP includes math, blueprint reading and drawing, health and safety, work readiness, industry awareness, tool training, construction basics, and more. Students will also complete a capstone project that will demonstrate the link between theory and practice and skills acquired throughout the program.
The program meets the apprenticeship preparation standards, and is officially recognized by, the Washington State Apprenticeship and Training Council (WSATC).
CAP is also supported by The Northwest Carpenters Institute (NWCI), allowing students who earned the CAP Certificate Direct Entry (Exception) into the NWCI apprenticeship program upon the next available trade orientation.
