Merit Apprenticeship Program   
Building tomorrow's workforce 

Welcome to the Merit Apprenticeship Program. MAP is a training coalition of merit shop contractors that have joined together to train individuals interested in pursuing careers in the construction trades. Training not only strengthens our companies, but also builds the future workforce we in construction so desperately need.

GI Bill & Apprenticeship

Most veterans are aware that GI Bill benefits can assist them in obtaining education and training in a traditional college environment, but many are unaware that these benefits can also be collected on a monthly basis, in addition to regular full-time wages, for participation in approved employer-sponsored apprenticeship training programs such as MAP.
