MCA High School Program
MCA’s Pre-Apprenticeship program is career education combining hands on lab training and related classroom instruction. Pre-Apprentices are full-time students in a local ISD. During the term of pre-apprenticeship, the pre-apprentice works and studies under the supervision and guidance of a journey person instructor for 10 hours each week without pay during the school term. However, hours spent in the lab count toward state apprenticeship license on-the-job learning hours.
Participants in MCA’s High School Program gain training and NCCER certifications for these in-demand fields while still in high school, allowing them to enter directly into the adult apprenticeship program upon graduation and participate in the on-the-job training partnership with area businesses.

In the Mid Coast Region, there is a critical shortage of skilled labor that is projected to grow over the next decade. Trained plumbers and electricians enjoy one of the most stable employment futures in the workforce and licensed plumbers and electricians experience a current average starting salary of $23 per hour in our area. Mid Coast Construction Academy is proud to partner with local businesses, school districts, and individuals as we address this issue through education and career development.
