Why Specialty Contractors Should Get Involved with C3

A shortage of skilled labor in the construction industry has created difficulties for Specialty Contractors to guarantee a certain level of project work to General Contractors.

C3 can help you by authenticating your commitment to safety and skills training so that you can attract and retain a strong craft workforce. By enrolling with C3 as an Accredited Employer, you’ll be equipped to deliver high-quality project work to General Contractors.

Our recommended next step is to enroll with C3. Specialty Contractors can obtain our designated C3 endorsement of your commitment to training so that you stand out in the market as an employer of choice.
