JumpStart Program

What is JumpStart?

The Jump Start program is a pre-apprenticeship and the key feeder program for the Skilled Trades of West Alabama apprenticeship programs. It is a comprehensive introductory program to the construction trades, built on the Core curriculum of the National Construction Center for Research & Education (NCCER). The course leads to certification for OSHA 10 safety requirements and other credentials. Once a student completes the course successfully, the student becomes employable and ready to go to work.

Eligibility requirements for entering Jump Start include: must be 18 years of age or older; ability to pass a background check and drug screening; and a valid driver’s license. 

In all courses, parts 1 and 2 must be completed to be considered for referrals for employment.
