As you may know we have been giving our journeymen the opportunity to take the NCCER exam. In doing this we were working towards a proud and educated workforce. Our mission is to build a safe, productive, and sustainable workforce of craft professionals. I am happy to update everyone and let them know that now 30% of our workforce is NCCER Certified and that number will only go up as the testing continues.

2010 Helper Trainee Graduation

 We have completed training our second graduating class of OJT Helpers. Ten trainees graduated this year bringing our total number of graduates up to twenty two. We celebrated at Mamacitas Mexican Restaurant where we had our graduates and their coaches in attendance. Katrina Kersch was able to join us and we all had a good time. The graduates recieved their completion certificate, plaque and gift card. These trainees are now able to begin their journeyman training. We expect great things from this group.
