Miller & Long Concrete Construction  
 

Apprenticeship Training

We believe in the development of our biggest asset, our employees. We offer apprenticeship opportunities to help our workforce develop and grow professionally. Our six instructors have a combined total of 172 years of experience in cast in place concrete.

Our concrete form apprentice carpenters and reinforcing ironworker apprentices are registered in the District of Columbia and are sponsored by the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Metro Washington. Our apprentices attend classes at the Apprenticeship Construction Academy of Design at Cardozo Senior High School twice a week in the evenings. Apprentices also meet one Saturday a month at the Miller & Long Yard for hands on instruction using our own tower crane and materials. Concrete Form Builders are required to complete 288 hours of class room instruction and 4,000 hours of on-the-job (OJT) training. Reinforcing Ironworkers are required to complete 432 hours of class room instruction and 6,000 hours of OJT. The cost for training is free to Miller & Long employees. In addition to paying for all training costs and materials, Miller & Long proudly pays apprentices to attend class.

With the help of our foremen and superintendents, we look at attendance, punctuality, attitude, and aptitude when recruiting new apprentices. Those employees that are interested in being part of the apprenticeship program can speak with their site superintendent. We are proud of the continuing growth and development of our apprenticeship program and are thankful that we can give this opportunity to those who strive for a career in concrete construction.
