Skilled Craft - Your Career. Our Company. Building Success Together.
Craft Apprenticeship and Development Training
Sundt believes in the importance of creating prosperity for our clients and communities. We recognize that we will reach those goals through safety, quality and productivity. That responsibility is often in the hands of those who perform the work, as they impact our ability to consistently exceed our customers’ expectations. Sundt is committed to creating opportunities for our people to learn and grow.
Much of our training occurs at the Center for Craft Excellence in Phoenix. We are certified by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) as an Accredited Training Unit under the sponsorship of the Arizona Builders’ Alliance/Associated General Contractors. Our craft training and apprenticeship programs use the NCCER’s nationally recognized curriculum and programs for heavy equipment operation, industrial carpentry, pipe fitting, welding and ironworking.
Sundt’s Front Line Supervisor training program emphasizes craft development and supports our goal to provide a clear pathway for craft employees to advance to supervisory and leadership positions. This interactive program provides essential training to significantly enhance the management and leadership skills of our foremen and superintendents in the areas of planning and scheduling, productivity monitoring, team building, continuous improvement, communication and feedback. Our front line supervisors have the most influence over our workers’ safety, quality and productivity, and their leadership and construction management skills are a major factor in Sundt’s success.
Sundt’s craft apprenticeship and development programs are an important part of our company’s career development program. Many of our employee-owners began their construction careers with Sundt directly out of high school and are now superintendents managing multi-million dollar projects.
Our company is also committed to self-performing work, creating more job opportunities for craft workers. Self-performing also gives us better control over time and schedule, which provides clients with a better product that meets their budgets.
An innovative partnership between Sundt and Central Arizona College (CAC) is training the next generation of construction professionals. CAC is offering five pre-employment one-year certificates and one three-year academic apprenticeship program that lead to certifications, certificates and degrees that prepare students for workforce needs, including heavy equipment operator, structural welding, pipe-fitting, industrial construction and concrete construction technology.
We also offer excellent craft benefits, ranked as the best in the industry by a recent Willis Towers Watson survey. Sundt is also 100 percent employee owned, offering workers a unique opportunity to build wealth for retirement.
