Construction Skill Training Program
PRESS RELEASE 12/1/09
SACC FOUNDATION AND WORKFORCE ALLIANCE TRAINING CONSTRUCTION WORKERS
The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the Lower Shore Workforce Alliance have continued their joint workforce development efforts this fall with a training class in construction skills.
The Lower Shore Workforce Alliance funded the program and recruited two students for the training who participated in a seven-week basic construction skills training program.
The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation Workforce Development Coordinator Joe Giordano and contractor Al Chandler of Delmarva Homes developed the curriculum and provided the training.
The class focused on framing, insulation/weatherization, roofing/siding, drywall, hanging/finishing, painting, trim and punch out.
The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation is looking for employers who will be able to interview and hire program graduates. The hope is to find them full-time entry-level positions in the construction, remodeling, and building maintenance. If you have any hiring needs in your maintenance or construction operation, call Joe Giordano at (410) 860 6664.
