2013 Students

“The class was amazing. I learned a lot of new things. From this class I got a chance to learn welding at the ship yard and I am now a full time employee. I have since grown and moving up and learning new things every day. I have a life long career now and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help and support from everyone involved in the Construction Academy. Thank you so much for everything. You guys have not only helped me but my family as well and I couldn’t be more grateful.” “I think the Construction Academy is a really good program. Chas Edwardson was a very reliable instructor. He helped a lot with construction processes and he showed us the correct way to do it.”
