About the Construction Trades

Apprentices of today are the supervisors, superintendents and contractors of tomorrow. Ambitious young persons should not stop advancing once they become a skilled tradesperson. Supervisory positions become available as they improve their skills, knowledge, and ability to direct and guide other people in their trade. Advancement, of course, depends on the individual.
