PAT Institute is CLAC Union trainer of choice due to the high success rate of apprentices.

CLAC and it's extensive training program has partnered with PAT because of its strong commitment to construction safety and skills orientation for its students. Our signatory contractors utilize PAT graduates because they know they will get a skilled and experienced employee who is ready to take on the complex challenges of the construction sector. Compared to new entrants who haven't taken a pre-apprenticeship program, PAT graduates sent to CLAC job sites are miles ahead with respect to basic trade knowledge and safety accumen. Our employers are looking for, and finding success with PAT graduates, and thats why its only organization, whose graduates qualify for the CLAC Employment Services Program, where our employers hire.
