Medical students in group

Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3) is a nationally recognized, industry certificate that introduces students to the different building trades and teaches them the skills necessary to successfully apply for a registered apprenticeship, debt-free. MC3 is a standardized, comprehensive, 120-hour construction course designed to help young people and transitioning adults choose and succeed in apprenticeship programs in the skilled trades that are appropriate for them. To learn more about MC3, go to the North America's Building Trades Unions website.

Students in Austin will be offered employment as an electrician's helper, plumber/pipefitter, laborer, sheet metal worker, fire sprinkler installer, insulator, or carpenter at the completion of the program!
