CCA Becomes a Department of Labor Apprenticeship Training Program












Construction Careers Academy is now recognized as an approved US Department of Labor full apprenticeship training program.  Academy students will now receive instructional hours, for the training received at the Academy, toward their apprenticeship program.    The official signing was at this year’s Department of Labor Apprenticeship USA conference held in San Antonio on September 28th, 2017.  The signing of the agreement serves as a milestone in the history of CCA, Northside Independent School District,  the State of Texas and the US Department of Labor.   It is a major step toward improving workforce development and filling shortages in the industry.  It, without question, showcases the very best of what public education has to offer.  Congratulations to the CCA team!!
