If being part of a construction team and working outdoors interests you, a career in construction work may be a perfect fit. KANSEL, a non-profit organization providing adult education services in Wichita, is offering a free seven-week construction training program. The next seven-week programs begins January 25, 2016.
The KANSEL Construction Training Program teaches basic construction skills using the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) core curriculum. Students will receive instruction in construction math, materials handling, power tools, hand tools and construction drawings. The course also includes a 10-hour OSHA safety course plus training to obtain a Class B CDL instructional permit. Following the class, KANSEL staff assists students with job placement.
“When a student completes our program we strive to get them in the construction workforce. Working with construction companies like Cornejo, Conco, Eby, and Dondlinger, gives our students an outstanding chance for employment,” explained Linda Eaves, Executive Director at KANSEL.
The construction training program welcomes adults aged 18 and over, and specifically encourages women and minorities to apply.
