Chattahoochee Technical College celebrated the 14 newest graduates of the Construction Ready workforce training program in a ceremony held recently at the college’s Marietta Campus. Partnering with Chattahoochee Tech in this initiative held for Cobb residents were the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), WorkSource Cobb, and HB Next.
“This partnership has allowed us to train a total of 63 students in four different training groups, resulting in a 100 percent job placement for those individuals,” said Chattahoochee Tech Associate Dean of Economic Development Cynthia Brown. “Our goal is to train individuals to be workforce ready and ultimately employed. Together we have reached that goal.”
Prior to the graduation ceremony, the 14 newest graduates of the Construction Ready career training program participated in a hiring fair prior held specifically for them, which had 47 well-paying jobs available to be filled. 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.
