The newest graduates of the Construction Ready career training program gathered recently at the Chattahoochee Technical College Marietta Campus for a graduation ceremony that celebrated a 100 percent job placement rate for the 21 program graduates. Partnering with Chattahoochee Tech in this initiative that was designed for Cobb residents was the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), WorkSource Cobb and HB Next.
This graduating class also had the Construction Ready training program’s 1,000th graduate, Lenworth Fraser III. “Everything you learn here is tailored to make you succeed,” said Fraser. Upon completion of the Construction Ready training program, Fraser participated in a hiring fair for program graduates, and he accepted a job offer from Ujamma Construction.
“I’m extremely proud of all of these graduates for staying the course and doing what they needed to do in order to graduate,” said Chattahoochee Tech Associate Dean of Economic Development Cynthia Brown. “This program is going to be life changing for them, and it is exciting to see the bright future that is available to them now.”
Construction Ready is a nationally accredited and hands-on, four-week construction training and certification program for men and women, which connects students to some of Atlanta’s top construction companies, according to CEFGA President and CEO Scott Shelar. Upon successful completion of this program, graduates may earn up to eight industry recognized credentials and participate in a hiring fair.
