Construction Training Program Tackles Shortage in Building Industry
In response to the North Bay’s high demand for skilled construction workers, the Marin Builders Association has again partnered with College of Marin, Canal Alliance, and CareerPoint Marin to bring construction training and job opportunities to students Marin.
The Education to Career (e2c) construction training program targets entry-level employment, providing the basic skills for success in the construction industry. In addition to technical skills, the program also includes career, financial and personal support to help ensure long-term career success.
It is anticipated that multiple students will be hired into construction jobs here in Marin as a result of this program.
Canal Alliance will be following up with each of the students over time to track their progress toward employment and advancement with our local construction firms.
Marin Builders Association members have reported that they are in need of qualified and dependable employees to help maintain and grow their businesses. This program is part of the solution that prepares our workforce for the increasing needs of our industry here in the North Bay.
In addition to the e2c program, the Marin Builders Association also supports the North Bay Construction Corps - Marin Class, Sponsored by the Mario Ghilotti Family Foundation, as well as the ROP Construction Technology Class at Redwood High School.
