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. The program utilizes 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 would 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 in our program will be well informed of 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 each class session and students can participate in a hiring event at the end of the program.
Students for this class must be enrolled in Adult Basic Education program, have completed 12 hours of basic skills education through an adult education provider, have completed the TABE assessment, and be enrolled for services through Region 5 WorkOne.
