Adaptive Construction Solutions provides innovative workforce development solutions by leveraging the experience and competence of Veterans from the US Armed Forces. ACS operates a registered group non joint apprenticeship for ironworking. The program is credentialed by NCCER and approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Currently, ACS is focused on providing opportunities to transitioning Service Members and the Veteran community. Eligible Veterans are authorized to utilize their GI Bill benefits to receive a monthly housing allowance in addition to their competitive wages. The combination of income provides journey level compensation during the apprenticeship. The Texas Gulf Coast Workforce Board and its affiliate, Workforce Solutions has provided ACS guidance and resources. The collaborative effort has created opportunities for hundreds of Veterans in the region.
