Apprenticeship Program


The AGC Multi-Trade Apprenticeship Training Program is comprised of on-the-job training and classroom related instruction.   Although this is a time-based program, a strong focus on competency is exercised. The emphasis in this program is the demonstration of trade-specific technical knowledge and skills mastery. Classroom assessment and field performance observation are tools that are used to ensure the ability to perform specified skills and tasks are mastered and retained. Classroom related instruction hours and on the job training hours are tracked, to further confirm that time spent in the program results in the acquisition of required knowledge.

Upon completion of the program graduates receive nationally recognized certification from the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), which is recognized in over 40 countries; and a Journeyworker certificate issued by the State of New Mexico, recognized in all 50 states.

The AGC Unilateral Training Apprenticeship Committee commits to the following Equal Opportunity Pledge:
The recruitment, selection, employment, and training of apprentices during their apprenticeship, shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, or sexual orientation.  The sponsor will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under NMAC 11.2.2 and as amended Title 29 CFR Part 30.


Developed in cooperation with the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions State Apprenticeship Agency and the United States Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship

The UTC enters into this Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) with good faith for the purpose of promoting equality of opportunity into its registered apprenticeship program. The UTC seeks to increase the recruitment of qualified women and/or minorities for possible selection into the apprenticeship program in the event women and/or minorities are underutilized in the apprenticeship program.  The UTC hereby adopts the following nondiscriminatory pledge and the Plan.

 In order to allow positive recruitment and full utilization of minorities and women in the apprenticeship program, the UTC pledges to identify outreach efforts under Section IV which will be undertaken.  The purpose of the analysis is to determine the minority and women’s labor force in the UTC’s labor market area.  Once the labor force is determined, the UTC can determine if deficiencies exist in terms of underutilization of minorities and/or women in the occupations registered with the State Apprenticeship Agency.  (See attached Affirmative Action Plan Analysis Worksheet)
