2 Year Apprentice Program

These are our 2nd year apprentice's working at the US Federal Courthouse and the VA-Outpatient Clinic.  These men have been attending an apprenticeship class 2.5 hrs, once a week since the start of 2011.  These men are evaluated every six months on Soft skills, Technical skills, Performance and NCCER training.  By taking full advantage of career advancement opportunities offered by Marek, they have shown great commitment over the past year and are key team players.

MBS Austin Apprenticeship Program

We would like to recognize our employees whom are participating in our apprenticeship program. In this picture they are standing in front of a frame and sheet rock wall which they built as part of the performance lab project. As part of the lab, each apprentice is required to take apart a metal and wood framing, install insulation and sheet rock using metal screws.

NCCER

As you may know we have been giving our journeymen the opportunity to take the NCCER exam. In doing this we were working towards a proud and educated workforce. Our mission is to build a safe, productive, and sustainable workforce of craft professionals. I am happy to update everyone and let them know that now 30% of our workforce is NCCER Certified and that number will only go up as the testing continues.

Our Service Awards Banquest for our employees was held on September 1, 2010 at the Barn Door. We would like to thank those awarded for their years of service and their hard work and dedication.

2010 Helper Trainee Graduation

 We have completed training our second graduating class of OJT Helpers. Ten trainees graduated this year bringing our total number of graduates up to twenty two. We celebrated at Mamacitas Mexican Restaurant where we had our graduates and their coaches in attendance. Katrina Kersch was able to join us and we all had a good time. The graduates recieved their completion certificate, plaque and gift card. These trainees are now able to begin their journeyman training. We expect great things from this group.
