The inaugural Skilled Trades high school pre-apprentice JumpStart class has graduated. On Friday, March 10th, nine outstanding high school seniors from Tuscaloosa City Schools – Bryant, Central and Northridge – received their graduation certificates and credentials.
The nine-week class provided training in the construction trades leading to potential employment upon graduation from their respective high school. Classes were held five days a week, two hours per day at the Skilled Trades Training Center.
This new endeavor provides graduating high school seniors with a real opportunity to participate in a credentialed pre-apprenticeship program that can lead to a defined career path, employment and eligibility for Skilled Trades’ apprenticeship programs.
