 Thousands of workers each year are retiring from the trades, in fact for every five people who retire only one is trained to replace them. Our country is in a dilemma because we do not have a sufficiently trained workforce to replace them and as the industry is getting older, smaller, the local demands are getting bigger. Let us help you find your new career with our training programs, short-term training opportunities, and partnership with workforce boards, where you can earn a competitive wage while helping to build a better future.
