ABC-NJ AETF now offers 19 exchanges in total in their apprenticeship program, working closely with the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and US-DOL to ensure its members have access to these vital programs and opportunities , in particular with regard to the law on the registration of public works contractors.

“From a member perspective, ABC-NJ has provided the support and guidance needed to run a successful business, especially when it comes to changing regulations. Adding new programs to get apprentices to take on-the-job training and learning is just one of the ways ABC-NJ continues to add value to its members.
