Career Outlook

The Highway Construction Careers Training Program (HCCTP) introduces students to local Department of Labor apprenticeships. Information about some of those opportunities can be found on the BuiltUnion Apprenticeships page. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) encourages contractors to hire HCCTP trainees on projects across the state. One large local project is the Interstate 57/74 interchange reconstruction project where several HCCTP graduates are currently employed.
