Indiana is projected to have over 140,000 construction job openings by the year 2026. The BY program trains applicants to be prepared and confident for a career in construction. This class will blend basic skills training provided by NEO with NCCER’s Core Curriculum: 80 hours of coursework that’s a combination of flexible classroom learning and onsite performance verifications. Applicants who successfully complete the program will receive the NCCER Core Credential (includes training in basic safety, construction math, hand and power tools, construction drawings, basic rigging and communication skills) and OSHA 10 certification. Students will also learn about career pathways for all aspects of construction and will be connected to the employers and training centers that will provide them with a pathway to a career in construction. Construction employers attend class sessions and students can participate in a hiring event at the end of the program.
