This series is about implementing Building Trades Multi-Craft Core Curriculum (MC3), an apprenticeship readiness curriculum developed by North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU). 

YouthBuild participants who successfully complete the MC3 receive an industry-recognized credential that can facilitate entry into registered apprenticeship programs sponsored by labor management organizations representing 14 crafts in the unionized construction industry.

The first webcast reviews the content and process of implementing the Curriculum at local YouthBuild programs.  The second webcast describes the details of developing an implementation plan with local building trades councils affiliated with NABTU.  The third webcast explains how the M3 online learning management system works.   Curriculum content, as well as registration and credentialing platforms are available through the MC3 Learning Management System.  The fourth and final webcast names a set of promising practices to initiate and sustain relationships with local building trades’ councils.  This is a critically important relationship that ensures pathways into registered apprenticeship.
