Workshops and Seminars

Courses available in-house or multi-employer!

The demand for skilled craftspeople is great. With that in mind, one of ACEF's goals is to attract the young, the career-displaced, and the economically disadvantaged to careers in the construction industry. Participants in our program will get the training and career placement opportunities and information needed to put them on track for employment and advancement in the construction industry.

ACEF is dedicated to the educational needs of the construction industry through the development of Safety Training, Management Education Seminars, and Continuing Education Workshops. Whether you are a contractor that needs 75 employees to become OSHA certified or a journeyman requiring an 8 hour continuing education workshop for license renewal, ACEF has the program for you.

If our scheduled, multi-employer courses do not fit your schedule, or you have a need for a program specifically designed for your company, ACEF can partner with you to develop programs that will address those needs. Contact us at (501) 372-1590 for more information.
