Craft Training – AGC/I offers members a state of the art craft training curriculum at numerous locations throughout the state during the off-season. Courses are developed by contractors, for contractors. In addition to a full schedule of these “public” courses, covering virtually every member specialty, customized in-house training services are also offered for any interested contractor on any topic. In-house courses are generally held at your site, using your equipment, exclusively for your employees. Both type of training programs are often eligible for DOT training fund cost reimbursement. AGC/I also offers interested contractors the Highway Industry Training (HIT) program, a DOT/FHWA approved OJT program with reduced training wages.
