Introduction to Construction and the Building Trades

The Job Connector's four-week Introduction to Construction and the Building Trades training program is currently underway. 17 Cambridge residents will spend 16 intensive hours learning about the construction industry. So far, outside experts have shared first-hand insights covering fields such as project management, environmental engineering, entrepreneurship, and the variety of work specialties in the building trades unions. Check out this two-minute video of last year's cohort to get an inside look at the program.
