Cuyamaca College Offers Green Construction Industry Training
Cuyamaca College will offer a six-week introductory course May 7 through June 25 for persons interested in careers in the “green” construction industry. The course is free to eligible students through a training program sponsored by the San Diego Workforce Partnership. The Introduction to Green Building Careers is funded through the State Energy Sector Partnership, an offshoot of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and will help displaced workers, the long-term unemployed, new workers, military veterans, and older youths gain the skills to compete for jobs in the expanding green economy. Those interested in taking the classes must go through an eligibility process that includes basic skills assessments and various workshops that must be completed prior to the start of class. Students must be 18 years of age or older, be able to read and speak English, registered for selective services, and hold legal status or have authorization to work in the United States. Attendance at an informational orientation on March 6 or 7 is mandatory to learn more about the program and eligibility requirements is required.
