From first aid to fall prevention and more, we help you stay in compliance and make employee safety a priority. Brush up on best practices, new or revised codes you need to know, and how to successfully navigate impactful regulations that affect your bottom line.

Give yourself the professional edge you need to get—and stay—ahead. We offer a range of courses to help you manage your business, including financial and risk management, contracts, and sales and marketing strategies.

Community partner, ANEW, works with us to provide classes that address respect, inclusion, safety, and equity in the construction trades. Learn more about the RISE Up program.

Unfortunately, the frequency of mental health issues is increasing within the construction industry. A 2020 study found that 83% of construction workers have experienced a mental health issue. We are partnering with local organizations to help our members navigate this tough but important topic.

We’ve partnered with Built Green to provide both MBAKS and Built Green members with various opportunities to learn more about green building efforts. Whether you are just starting to learn or a seasoned green employer, we have educational opportunities for you.

We’ve expanded our online class offerings and webinar library, which are always available on our YouTube page. We also offer classes in Spanish. Contact to learn more about additional educational opportunities and class accommodations.
