Academy of Craft Training 

The Academy of Craft Training is located in downtown Birmingham at the Workforce Training Center. Students interested in learning trades in the construction industry apply and interview to be selected as a part of the program. Students can specialize in learning Welding, Building & Construction, Electrical, HVAC/Plumbing, or Masonry and receive Career Technical Education Credit for participation. With the hopes of developing Alabama's workforce, the Academy of Craft Training serves to place their participating students into careers after graduation. Many have received full-time job placement with educational benefits after their graduation from their high school. At the Academy of Craft Training, students will get to work alongside students from other high schools in the Birmingham surrounding area, and build leadership, teamwork, and networking skills aside from their trade.
