Building futures

May 26, 2010

Our newest Construction Skills Training class just started, and it’s especially exciting because this is the first class that will be learning green building practices as part of the green jobs training grant that we received a few months ago.

Our new students are learning about Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification through the U.S. Green Building Council, construction math, how to read blueprints and use tools, and even get to do forklift training and certification. Plus, they get resume development and interview skills, communication training, and work ethics training. When they graduate, they’ll have OSHA state certification for safety and job placement assistance.

This new class will be even be building new construction classrooms at our Career Development Center on Freedom Drive. We’ll be sure to post pictures when they’re finished!
