AGC of San Diego operates the state’s first and largest open-shop apprenticeship program. Apprenticeship training consists of 1) a combination of on-the-job training, plus 2) related education.

All registered apprentices would become full-time employees of a construction company and learning their trade on a daily basis. Since apprentices are employees, they are earning income while they are learning. The second requirement is related to education. Apprentices must attend classes two nights per week for a minimum of 24 weeks out of the year. The entire program lasts between 2-4 years depending on the trade and upon completion/graduation, the AGC and state of California award a certificate that is recognized throughout the industry as a valid indicator of high-quality training, signifying that the apprentice has completed an apprenticeship program which meets the industry standards of occupational proficiency.
