With so many unfilled construction jobs, the right training can really pay off!

In today’s economy, it’s hard to imagine going into debt of $50 thousand or more for an education that leads a job making less than $30 thousand a year. And yet, it happens, and a lot more often than many people would like to think. According to The Student Loan Report, an online aggregator of news regarding the student loan industry, national student loan has reached $1.4 trillion, surpassing credit card and auto loan debt as the largest consumer debt sources.

If you’re thinking that there has to be a better way, there is! Since 1994, the Arkansas Construction Education Foundation (ACEF) has provided quality construction job training to produce a safe, competent and professional workforce for contractors. Our building construction training programs are geared toward those who enjoy working with their heads and their hands as we work to satisfy the ever-growing demand for skilled trades-persons.

ACEF offers construction apprenticeship opportunities in Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, HVAC, Electronic Systems Technology, Building Maintenance, and Industrial Maintenance, all serving the dual purpose of offering a wide variety of study fields which in turn meet a wide variety of industry needs. The foundation also conducts safety and management education courses for construction, commercial, and industrial operations. Safety is an important component of all ACEF training courses.

With so many locations across the state to choose from, students will never have to travel far to maintain their studies. After completing an ACEF training program, graduates are prepared to take the licensing exams for either electrical or plumbing, or receive certifications in the case of unlicensed trades. ACEF is certified by the U.S. Department of Labor, recognized by the Arkansas Department of Career Education, and accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).

The construction industry offers many well-paid careers, and instead of requiring you to take on massive debt through four years of college, you can earn while you learn and launch into a high paying, satisfying career with lifetime growth potential!
