Thriving in Eastern New York

Often referred to as the Capital Region because it’s the heart of state government, the region is also known for other key cities and attractions. The area stretches from Lake Placid to the historic Saratoga Race Course, from Schenectady deep into the Hudson Valley. The area calls itself the “epicenter of New York’s Tech Valley”.

The region is home to some industrial giants like GE and IBM and smaller tech growth firms. It’s deep in education with schools like SUNY Albany, RPI, and Marist. It’s also home to our United States Military Academy at West Point.

Our ENY members understand the importance of training and education. Our office has the ability to provide craft training in over 50 different trades using our NCCER curriculum.

Currently, we’re offering training programs in the following trades:

  • Carpentry
  • Insulating
  • Plumbing/Pipefitter
  • Sheet Metal
  • Laborer
  • Operator
  • Construction Essentials/CORE

With over 100 contractor members that build in the region, the ABC office provides supports and services from Apprenticeship craft training to safety and management development.
