What Our Graduates Are Saying

“As an electrical apprentice, I’m working with very experienced individuals who are showing me the ropes, while learning how to use new tools and materials to get the job done. My goal is to gain my journeyman license, have my own company and go to school for business management.”

Timothy M.

“I started as a laborer at PCL Construction before starting my apprenticeship to become a carpenter. My goal for the future is to graduate with my journeyman’s license and to become a general foreman in my trade.”

Mauricio D.

“I have always been curious about HVAC and thanks to CrossPurpose I was able to get enrolled and accepted into The Masters Apprentice Program where I met another great family. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am right now – maintaining a full-time job as an apprentice at MTech mechanical where I will continue my education and graduate with an associates degree in four years.”
