ACC’s Concrete Tech Program Prepares Students For Real World Jobs


A program at Alpena Community College has proven a successful turnout rate for students.

The program is preparing students for the real world– with real job offers after the completion of the course.

Concrete technology is a program right here at Alpena Community College. It’s a two–year program that is often overlooked. But three students are showing that it’s very rewarding upon completion.

The program provides students with in–depth preparation for their future careers through internships, training and hands on experience.

Such preparation resulted in job offers across the state and a generous entry level salary for three concrete tech students…the lowest being $50,000 and the highest up to $70,000.

Two students are pursuing careers out of state, as they were offered jobs in Colorado and Wisconsin. Another student, Gavin Kelly, is the youngest of the three, but is making big moves as well. He’s relocating to Livonia, MI to begin his career.

The students will be relocating to start their new careers after graduation this month.
