HBI’s pre-apprenticeship program is designed to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in our apprenticeship program. Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training (PACT) can help participants diversify their skillset and meet the basic qualifications for admittance into a formal apprenticeship program. The program includes approved training curriculum based on industry standards, education, pre-vocational services, hands-on experience in a simulated lab or with a volunteer opportunity, and apprenticeship application support.

The pre-apprenticeship program is extended through Job Corps or WTE PACT and is currently offered in the following areas:

  • Building Construction Technology
  • Electrical
  • HVAC
  • Landscaping
  • Plumbing
