Pre-Apprentiship Training

PVJOBS is offering Pre-Apprenticeship Training for those wishing to learn more about the construction industry. The Construction 101 classes are three weeks long and require an attendance commitment from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Tech Math course is eight weeks in length and is held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on eight Saturdays.

February 2017 Training ClassConstruction 101 participants will learn the basics of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and receive their OSHA – 30 cards; gain knowledge of the local construction trade unions; take field trips to local union and construction sites; receive hazardous materials training; and conduct hands-on work regarding the use of construction math, measurements, tools and materials. Work-readiness training is also included.

Tech Math participants will first need to be tested to enter the class, which will prepare them to pass the algebra-related entrance examinations for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union.

Limited seating is available for the classes, which are taught by an instructor from the Electrical Training Institute.

Participants must be at least 17 and enrolled at a local WorkSource Center.
