WATERTOWN, N.Y. – A 12-week pre-apprenticeship construction training program is coming to the North Country for qualified individuals free of charge thanks to a New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) grant and Jefferson Community College (JCC). Space is limited. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply now!
Construction training will begin May 1 and will wrap up by July 26. Classes will be held at the Lewis County JCC Education Center, Lowville, a location conveniently accessible by Lewis County Public Transportation.
Upon successful completion, participants will accrue 400 hours of classroom and hands-on training and two industry-recognized credentials, the OSHA 10 card for training on critical safety construction workplace topics and the National Center for Construction Education and Research certification in Level 1 Carpentry.
In addition, successful candidates will have an opportunity to apply for a skilled trade apprenticeship at the conclusion of training and/or move directly into employment in the construction sector.
“We are excited to address the workforce shortages in our region while giving individuals the opportunity to prepare themselves for a high demand job,” said Megan A. Stadler, JCC Associate Vice President for Strategic Initiatives.
