October 27, 2020 For the Register
Are you, or is someone you know, interested in working in the construction industry? UpValley Family Centers is excited to announce the second year of a Building and Construction Trades Program, offered to local residents. Participants will: learn to identify, predict, prevent and stop potential hazards in the workplace; learn essential math skills needed in construction; receive hands on training with a range of tools; learn to read blueprints; and more.
Before signing up, an orientation to the program is required. Join a virtual orientation on Oct. 29 or Nov. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Last year, 30 people participated and received the needed skills to get hired or increase their wages in the construction industry. As our community recovers from recent wildfires, construction skills will continue to be in high demand. This program is a partnership of the Napa Valley Adult School, Napa Valley College, Calistoga Joint Unified School District, On The Move, UpValley Family Centers, and the Napa Valley Community Foundation.
