Strong as Ever on Long Island
The Long Island/Metropolitan region hosts over 150 contractor members. As one of our largest regions, it covers the Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, and Westchester counties.
This region is one of the most heavily regulated places to work as a contractor. Our members overcome this challenge by educating/training their staff so they can perform work safely and efficiently. It’s not easy to be a contractor here and for that reason, the men and women who do perform the work are experts in their fields.
Our regional office provides supports and services ranging from Apprenticeship craft training to safety training as well as professional development. The Empire Chapter provides craft training in the most popular trades. However, we have the ability to provide nationally recognized curriculum-based training in over 50 different trades.
Currently, we’re offering craft training in the following trades:
- Dock Builder
- Iron Worker
- Sheet Metal
- Construction Essentials/CORE
In addition to safety and craft training, the region also holds social programs to bring the community together and strengthen the bonds between our members. ABC is proud to support merit shop contractors in our Long Island/Metropolitan region.
