Pre-Apprenticeship Construction Training (P.A.C.T.)


The Pre-Apprenticeship Construction Training program is designed to assist adults, to gain the skills needed to make them successful competitors for entry-level jobs in construction trade apprenticeship programs. Participants study and apply subjects and skills that are relevant to the work-sites of many occupations, and tour many apprenticeship schools and construction job sites. Students learn basic carpentry skills and terminology, shop math, and effective and safe operation of power tools and demonstrate their competency. Students learn and receive certification in forklift operation, road flagging, OSHA 10 safety, and first aid/CPR. There is additional emphasis on learning skills and adopting attitudes that lead to becoming a positive and productive member of any worksite team/organization. The focus is on building habits for success, including time management, understanding non-verbal communication, taking the initiative, group/ team communication, and line/staff/team organization.
