The Associated Builders and Contractors of Illinois (ABCIL) has recently launched a unique opportunity for military veterans that guarantees them employment during and after their work training. Veterans frequently have trouble finding a job after their military service.
Currently only available in Illinois, the intensive seven-week training course to become electricians has been made possible by the ABCIL and the non-profit USA Cares. Veterans receive free tuition for the program and pay for their time spent learning. While veterans will have three years of training before they are fully certified, the program affords them a tremendous jump start on their future careers.
