At NCW, we are teaching this lean thinking to our HVAC Service Tech Trainees.

We’re Moving in January 2013!

We are moving to a new space in order to accommodate a new on-site Training Facility for our 10 Week Pre-Apprenticeship Boot Camp. In January our new address will be 2130 Winter Avenue, Indianapolis IN 46218.

National Construction Workforce recognizes that the 2012-2013 commercial and industrial construction labor market is “top-heavy” due to a variety of reasons, much of them connected to macroeconomic construction conditions from 2008-2011. What entry level labor clients are able to find, typically isn’t qualified enough to meet production demands, or there is too small of a supply of those that are.

National Construction is focusing on offering a Pre-Apprenticeship Boot Camp, where its DOL certified apprentice relationships with ABC and IEC will be supplemented with targeted entry level skills gap training. At the end of 10 weeks, participants will receive:

  1. OSHA 10 certificate
  2. Boom / scissor lift certification
  3. MICCS certification
  4. First Aid certification
  5. 15-20% journeyman capacity, using NCCER standards

In addition to using this facility to develop entry level labor, National Construction has also enhanced its already detailed recruiting and screening process by allowing for actual hands on testing in this same Indianapolis, Indiana facility.
