Certified Construction Training Program

This training program prepares participants to earn the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER)'s Core Construction Certificate.  One week of work readiness curriculum includes résumé development, workplace professionalism, mock interviews, work ethics, basic computer skills, communications and financial management. Classroom training will include instruction in Basic Safety, Communication Skills, and Introduction to Construction Drawings.

The Certified Construction Training Program is intended to help ex-offenders, and other individuals interested in a career in construction, gain skills and prepare to re-enter the workforce.  

Goodwill provides assistance in job searching – including access to Job Connection resources and personalized guidance from a case manager – but employment is not guaranteed.
