Chattahoochee Technical College is partnering with the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), HB NEXT, and Cobb WorkSource Georgia to offer Cobb County residents free training in the four-week, nationally accredited Construction Ready certification program to prepare participants for employment opportunities available in the construction industry.

Construction Ready program participants will participate in hands-on construction training and, upon graduation, will participate in a hiring fair that will connect them to some of Atlanta’s top construction companies. All classes will be held at the Chattahoochee Tech Marietta Campus, with lunch provided for program participants. Participants must be at least 18 years old, physically fit, and able to pass a drug screening and criminal background check.
