Tamika Turner got excited when she discovered the Apprenticeship Readiness Program (ARP) offered by North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) at Bishop State Community College.

“I was online one day and just looking, and they had an apprenticeship program, so I applied for it and they called me back,” Turner said. “More money, more skills – I couldn’t beat that.”
