            Want to get involved?

            Please contact our student president, Bryce Danielson (bdanielson23@hotmail.com) for information on how to get involved prior to membership selection.

            How Does it Work?

            All participating contractors will gather in our conference room around the board table at the same time on a selected day in October. Each student enters, one at a time, for a 15-minute interview with the group of contractors. Following the interviews, we help match the student with a company based on the student’s experience and/or desired opportunities, as well as the needs of the particular companies.

            The only commitment from Internship Day is for a summer internship, but of course we hope to see full time positions blossom out of our program if the pairing works out for both the student and company.

            Opportunities are also available for internships during the school year by contacting the MCA-Omaha office.

            Next Internship Day: Thursday, October 28, 2021

            Each Academy Member is paired with a one-on-one contractor mentor for the calendar year. Students can expect to participate in at least 4 activities with their mentor, including:

            • A jobsite tour
            • An office visit or shop tour
            • Attend a MCA-Omaha meeting together
            • Meet for coffee or lunch

            Students and mentors also meet all together each year in January for our Annual Mentor Meet & Greet. A short ice-breaker game is played to get the students thinking outside of the box, as well as meet everyone for the first time.

            Additional interactions and continued communication are highly encouraged!

            Next Mentor Meet & Greet: January 20th, 2022

            Academy Members have the opportunity to apply for multiple scholarships each spring and are typically awarded at the Beer Tasting Fundraiser event, as well as announced at the University Banquets.

              Build Our Nebraksa

              The construction industry is the nation’s largest single industry, employing more people and contributing more money to America’s bottom line than any other single industry. With the need for new schools, hospitals, housing and other commercial buildings only increasing, the industry is going to need more and more quality workers to get all of the projects done.

              Plumbing and steamfitting are no exception. Check out these two outstanding career opportunities below to learn more about how you could start your career in an industry where you are presented with new challenges everyday, continuously learning new skills and technologies, and receiving a wage and benefit package, even as an apprentice, that will provide for you and your family. Plus, you’ll actually be able to say, “I built that!”

              Steamfitters fabricate, assemble, install, maintain, and repair piping systems that transport all types of fluids, slurries, and gas in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.

              They learn through an approved apprenticeship how to install, change and repair pipe systems and do all types of pipe welding, in addition to measuring, cutting, bending, threading, and joining pipes.

              The Steamfitters and Plumbers Local 464 apprenticeship program is 5 years and includes hands on training while working for a mechanical contractor, as well as classroom instruction in tools, materials, math, blueprint reading, safety, building information modeling (BIM), and a variety of other classes.

              Plumbers perform work that is essential to the health and safety of our community. Plumbers install drinking water, waste, and ventilating systems, as well as wastewater treatment systems large and small in homes, offices, schools, hospitals, and commercial and manufacturing facilities.

              The Plumbers Local 16 apprenticeship program is 5 years and includes hands on training while working for a mechanical contractor, as well as classroom instruction in tools, materials, math, blueprint reading, safety, building information modeling (BIM), and a variety of other classes.

              With a growing focus on green technologies, water conservation and energy efficiency, the demand for plumbers will increase significantly in the years ahead.

              Typical Wages

              First-Year Apprentice
              $24,000 – $34,000 Net Taxable + Benefits
