A new level of workforce, committed to a career in construction, is waiting!
This new construction workforce is serious about beginning a career in construction as they have gone through the Construction Careers Now curriculum at Emily Griffith Technical College. They are ready to begin their career path in construction.
NOTE: All registrants will receive 1 table and 2 chairs. There will be electrical outlets available at all tables, extension cords may be needed, and each space will be large enough for a backdrop. Tables are arranged alphabetically.
CCN recently reached a landmark of graduating more than 1,000 students since the program’s inception in September 2016. Of the current 1,035 graduates, CCN says that 56% have been hired by local firms and 16% are continuing their education in the construction trades.
CCN offers a no-cost, four-week training program on construction basics, including a 10-hour OSHA training certificate. The program is funded by the state of Colorado, with donations from AGC of Colorado, Colorado Contractors Association, and Hispanic Contractors of Colorado.
Instructors from Emily Griffith Technical College and IECRM’s very own training director, Paul Lingo, provide an introduction to the construction trades with both classroom and hands-on learning. Each four-week course includes an OSHA-10 certification course for each participant and concludes with its own hiring fair, which brings local construction firms and contractors face to face with graduates of the pre-apprenticeship program to aid in meeting the labor demands of the electrical and construction industry.
IECRM will host a booth at each CCN hiring fair and invites its members to join us at our booth or to host your own booth and meet quality candidates that are OSHA-10 certified.
