Safety Development

Health and safety are core values of The Cianbro Companies, with 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 members home from work in better condition than when they arrived; healthier, more educated, and able to influence the people around them.
Professional Trade Development

Professional Trade Development

Professional trade development opportunities provide team members with the knowledge and experience to grow into journey-level tradespeople. Each program is tailored to include a combination of classroom and hands-on instruction. Cianbro believes this approach gives team members the best opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of their trade. Plus, participants in each of these programs will earn a wage while they learn!
Pre-Apprenticeship Program

Pre-Apprenticeship Program

One of the first steps in developing a career in the trades is through Cianbro's Pre-Apprenticeship Program. This program supports those who are interested in the trades but have little to no experience. Through classroom and hands-on learning, participants will develop the fundamental skills needed to fulfill a key role on the project team as a helper in one of the following trades: electrical, mechanical (pipefitter/ironworker/millwright), and civil (carpentry/concrete work). Upon successful completion of this three-week educational session, participants will receive a starter toolbox and a project assignment where they will apply their newly acquired skills while working alongside Cianbro’s craft professionals! Once on the jobsite, if the team member demonstrates positive performance, they can be endorsed into one of Cianbro’s formal, long-term apprenticeship programs.


Cianbro offers apprenticeship opportunities within several trades, including electrical, millwright, pipefitter, ironworker, carpenter, substation technician, and power line worker. In each of these programs we utilize the nationally recognized NCCER Curriculum (National Center for Construction Education and Research). The apprenticeships provide team members with periodic classroom/hands-on instruction and continuous on-the-job learning where they can apply their education. Upon completion, team members will become NCCER certified journey-level tradespeople, making journey-level wages with zero debt!
