About American Skilled Labor Association

Our Mission: It is the mission of ASLA to provide a suitable employee to the American Workforce. We will do this by providing businesses with a clear path for mentors and locating employees who have the aptitude to succeed in a chosen career.

American Skilled Labor Association builds Comprehensive Educational Apprentice Programs for the skilled labor industry both in the classroom and on the job. We start with introduction as early as the seventh grade with an elective 7-9th classroom course. Once the student has graduated high school they can be placed in a business to work alongside a mentor to learn a skilled trade.

ASLA is committed to creating a Comprehensive Educational Apprenticeship Program to develop and train skilled employees who have the direction, support, and desire to succeed in a chosen technical career.

ASLA is a 501 c3 non-profit organization based in Alexander, Arkansas established in 2014.

When available the program is submitted to the United Stated department of Labor as an Approved Apprenticeship Program. This allows businesses access to federal funds for training apprentices. Current Approved Program is for Automotive Technician sanctioned in all 50 states. Programs under construction include Heavy Duty Truck, Parts Counter Person, and Body Shop Technician.
