Official Recognition

On July 6, 1994, The U.S. Department of Laborers' Bureau of Apprenticeship Training (BAT) officially recognized the Construction Laborers' occupation as an apprenticable trade. The Board of Trustees of the Laborers' Training & Apprenticeship realized this official recognition was a long waited opportunity to develop a structured training program that would consistently provide union contractors with productive multi-skilled construction Laborers. In keeping with the national standards, the Laborers’ Training & Apprenticeship Institute has established an apprenticeship program for construction craft Laborers in the Metropolitan Baltimore area.
