ABC Board Tours Academy of Craft Training


This morning, 35-plus board members for ABC of Alabama toured and celebrated the successes of the Academy of Craft Training. Now touting 90-plus students enrolled, this program is receiving both state and national recognition. “What our association has been able to pull together with cooperation from both public and private entities is remarkable,” said ABC of Alabama's 2016 Chairman of the Board Randall Curtis, of Hoar Construction. “Our strategic plan specifically referenced the association taking a leadership role in our industry’s largest problem: skilled labor on the jobsite. These 90-plus students are excited about the opportunities presented before them, and as we could tell on their faces this morning, are serious about a career in construction. Recruiting 90 students into the industry certainly warrants us as a leader.”
