The Building Trades Pre-Apprenticeship Program (BTPAP) is designed to move participants successfully into the construction building trades. The program is a free eight week program and is open to qualified candidates. Participants are exposed to a variety of the building trades through both classroom and hands-on training. In addition, key instructional components of BTPAP include math instruction, business communications and fitness training. BTPAP is the only local pre-apprenticeship construction training program with a strong commitment and support from the Buffalo Building Trades Council.
