The Construction & Maintenance Education Foundation (CMEF) is the educational affiliate of ABC Greater Houston. In 1988, CMEF began as a joint partnership between industrial owners and contractors working together to solve the skilled labor shortage facing the Greater Houston construction industry.
CMEF is a non-profit 501 (c3) solely devoted to servicing the workforce development needs of the contractor community through programs ranging from craft and safety training to management and leadership instruction. CMEF is accredited by the NCCER, and all of our courses are taught using the nationally standardized NCCER curriculum.
The Construction & Maintenance Education Foundation is the vehicle through which industry and craft professionals in the Houston area receive formal training. Our goal is to recruit new entrants and upskill existing workers through a variety of programs focused on assessment, training, and continuing education. We believe that a community approach to training is fundamental to developing a skilled and educated craft workforce within the entire industry.
CMEF is proud to offer competency-based craft training in a variety of areas. Students will progress through a combination of classroom, laboratory, and virtual instruction. Included in our programs are Performance and Knowledge Testing. These programs are ideal for workers new to the industry, task training existing workers, and upgrading journeymen. NCCER Nationally Standardized Craft Curriculum is taught by certified instructors.
CMEF is now offering many craft training courses in a partially virtual environment.
