Construction Training Program

The Construction Training Program utilizes a curriculum developed by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). NCCERs Core Curriculum is 120 hours of instruction that teaches the fundamentals of construction: basic rigging, basic communication, and employability skills. Department of Labor recognizes this as the coursework equivalent of a person's first year of apprenticeship training.


This 8-week program trains individuals to be prepared and confident for a career in construction. Students learn through a variety of classroom learning and onsite performance verifications taught through modules, as well as 40 hours of professional work experience on a construction site or project. Throughout the training course, students are provided with the opportunity to take what they have learned and apply it in the field. Students who complete the training program earn NCCER Core and OSHA-10 certifications and are provided with job placement services.
