About the HBI PACT Program
The HBI PACT program is designed to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in apprenticeship programs.  Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training can help participants diversify their skill set and meet the basic qualifications for admittance into a formal apprenticeship program.  The program includes an approved training curriculum based on industry standards, education, pre-vocational services, hands-on experience in a simulated lab or with a volunteer opportunity, and apprenticeship application support.

It gives your participants the opportunity to learn the building trades by licensing the PACT program.  The award-winning curriculum, based on the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Standard and National Skills Standards, is one of the only three pre-apprenticeship curricula recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) deployed in youth training programs nationwide.  The PACT curriculum integrates performance-based learning in the building trades with vocational and academic skills training and includes life skills, career development, and on-the-job training.
