This is a FREE 5-week in-person summer training program for someone who is motivated to start not just a job, but a career in construction trades. Previous participants have gone on to construction careers in roofing, flooring, and painting. In partnerships with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) we are lending a special lens to highway heavy careers this summer where participants will be visiting a highway heavy site and connecting with highway heavy employers.
Participants will be able to gain hands on training with power tools, learning trades math, and receive an introduction to OSHA.
Qualifications for this program:
1. People ages 18+ who possess a high school diploma or GED
2. Immigrants, refugees, or people of color, or people who reside in zip codes 55106, 55107, 55130, 55113, or 55119
3. People interested in construction jobs, such as building roads or bridges, carpentry, cement masonry, paintings or coatings, drywall, or flooring
4. Participants need to be able to communicate in English because they will go straight from training to a trades job!
