Orientation held for construction professionals

by Nick Delgado

Guam - More than 55 individuals are getting the skills they need to excel in the construction industry.  The Guam Transportation Training Program recently held a participant orientation as it provides training opportunities for underserved, unemployed and underemployed individuals in highway construction and other transportation-related services.

Program Project Manager Lorraine Okada said, "Many times contractors are ready to get them in for on-the-job training, but for safety reasons they need safety gear, you know safety hat, and safety boots...these students if they don't have the money to buy these tools to help them succeed in this training program; we pay for that, as well."

Classroom training from the Guam Contractors Association Trades Academy and Guam Community College are also included in the program.
