Pre-apprenticeship programs prepare students who seek careers in the construction trades. These programs are designed to help students build the necessary skills to meet the minimum entry qualifications to enter a trade or apprenticeship program.  

The following Oregon State Apprenticeship and Training Council (OSATC) approved pre-apprenticeship training organizations work to provide individuals with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to compete for entry into any of the many OSATC approved apprenticeship programs. These programs are a vital first step for many individuals who do come from a construction background.
