17 Days to a Great Career!

The Construction Workforce Development Alliance (CWDA) is offering full-tuition scholarships for the 2017 Construction Core Jump Start Program. In its fourth year, the 2017 Jump Start Program is an intensive 17-day training program open to students aged 18 – 24.

The Jump Start program is based on the ABC Western Michigan Construction Core program which teaches basic construction skills including construction math, hand/power tools, and basic blueprint reading. Graduates earn a 10-hour OSHA card, rough-terrain forklift license, First Aid/CPR card, and lead and asbestos awareness.

At the conclusion of the training program students are offered a minimum of two job interviews with CWDA association member companies who are eager to hire entry-level professionals.

The Jump Start program positions students who complete the training  with the basic skills necessary to work in the construction industry.
