GBCA is helping construction workers access higher education. An education in Construction Management is more than sitting in a classroom: GBCA is working to reach agreements with colleges and universities in the Philadelphia Region to have the instruction and experience of an apprenticeship count as credits towards degree programs in construction-related fields.

GBCA has reached agreements that allow the Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Committee’s Carpenters’ Apprenticeship Training Program count as college credits.
