Informational Sessions available for highway construction careers training program

ICC will hold several informational sessions for its Highway Construction Careers Training Program (HCCTP). HCCTP was implemented to increase the number of minorities, women, and disadvantaged individuals working on IDOT highway construction projects and is offered through the Corporate and Community Education Department at ICC. Classes for the next training program will begin on November 10.

HCCTP’s intensive 12-week program prepares participants for careers in the highway construction trades industry through classroom learning, skills labs, and jobsite experience. Training includes, but is not limited to, math for trades, job readiness skills, welding, and hand-on technical skills, as well as OSHA 10-hour certification and first aid/CPR certification.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will have the skills necessary to seek employment as laborers, cement masons, operating engineers, electricians, ironworkers, sheet metal workers, carpenters, bricklayers, and other union trades.

Applicants for the program must be 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license, have a high school diploma or GED, provide copy of birth certificate, consent to taking the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) exam, and consent to a drug test.
Applications will only be taken at the one hour informational sessions. Informational sessions are open to the public, and reserved seating is not required. Informational sessions will be held:
