Nationally Recognized Education Programs

High School and College Internships

Cianbro offers students the opportunity to work on a project site or within a department in one of our office locations.

Prior to arriving to their summer assignment, we deliver an in-depth, week-long orientation (Construction Boot Camp) introducing high school and college interns to the construction industry. Participants learn safe and proper operation of small tools; how to operate a scissor and aerial lift, tie rebar, and erect staging. This is a great opportunity for participants to get hands-on instruction and build relationships with fellow interns.


Safety Development

Cianbro has dedicated resources to ensure continuous education on the importance of recognizing at-risk behaviors/conditions and speaking up to correct these hazards. Our goal is to send team member's home in better condition than which they arrived; healthier, more educated, and able to influence the people around them.


Professional Trade and Craft Skills Development

In-house craft development programs are long-term workforce investments producing highly skilled professionals. Using the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum, each of Cianbro's program are tailored to link classroom instruction with On-The-Job Learning.

Whether a team member is in a state registered apprenticeship program or a non-registered program, they will be exposed to a mixture of classroom, hands-on, and On-The-Job Learning. We believe this approach gives team members the best opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of their trade.



Apprenticeships provide team members the opportunity to gain exposure to several different trades, and earn a wage while learning that trade. Types of apprenticeships include pre-apprenticeship, electrical, millwright, pipefitter, crane operator, and power line worker.


Leadership Development

Cianbro offers management, supervisory, and leadership courses, all of which are tailored to invest in the long-term development and retention of talented, capable leaders at all levels of the company. Whether in the field or the office, these courses are designed to enhance team members leadership skills, ranging from multi-day sessions to multi-month rotations in different departments.


Professional Development

Cianbro offers both internal and external professional development courses including Lean development, field administration, NCCER, business writing, computer systems, and negotiations to name a few.

Additionally, Cianbro encourages eligible team members to develop skills and engage in lifelong learning at accredited trade schools, colleges, universities and other educational institutions by offering a tuition reimbursement program.
