ABC knows the future of the industry relies on its ability to attract and retain the most talented individuals necessary to meet the nation’s ever-increasing construction needs. ABC is leading the way in developing the merit shop construction industry workforce by offering programs ,such as the ABC Craft Championship, that promote life-long learning experience and national recognition based on achievement at every career level.
In 2015, the ABC Pacific Northwest Chapter held the 1st Annual Craft Championship at the Northwest College of Construction. At this event, 3rd and 4th year apprentices in the HVAC and Sheet Metal apprenticeship programs competed to win a trip to compete at the ABC National Craft Championships. Jarrod Abbot of Gohman Mechanical and Tom Burns of American Heating did a phenomenal job representing ABC Pacific Northwest!
In 2017, Joel Sauvain of ProTemp Associates and Manual Cruzaley, Reitmeier NW will be representing ABC Pacific Northwest at Nationals!
We look forward to hosting this event for many years to come! Mark your calendars to come support the future of the industry on October 20, 2017 at the ABC Offices from 8am to 3pm! This event is open to the public.
