About CFK’s Apprenticeships in Construction Technologies:
CFK’s Apprenticeships in Construction Technologies offer opportunities to help individuals train and advance in high-wage, high-demand construction careers throughout the Florida Keys. In collaboration with local construction businesses, CFK’s apprenticeship programs provide education and training in all aspects of the respective trades—from conceptual to practical skills. Through its “learn while you earn” model, students are employed (and paid) full-time with a sponsoring employer that is partnered with CFK. They attend classes, which are tuition-free, while developing their skills through on-the-job training with their sponsor. As apprentice students advance through the program, their progress is rewarded with periodic wage increases.
Upon successful program completion, an apprentice will be considered a “journey worker” and will receive a four-level certification by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) as well as a nationally recognized Completion of Apprenticeship certificate by the State of Florida.
