Welding and Construction Boot Camps Taking Sign-ups

Butte County Office of Education Adult Ed is offering Welding and Construction Boot Camps

Welding Boot Camp in progress: 22 adult students in Chico are learning the basics of welding and will be looking for work. This boot camp is through Butte County Office of Education and is for adults who want jobs. If you are looking for people who want to work – here they are.

The program is looking for 2-week welding internships for these new workers.

The instructor wants to talk with companies who hire welders to hear what you need.

VCE is helping coordinate. If your company uses welders and you want to hire or advise, contact Carrie at VCE. Email carrie@vceonline or call 530-343-1981.

Construction Boot Camp coming March 5: Butte County Office of Education Adult Ed is offering Construction Core: Introductory Craft Skills beginning March 5. The course introduces the basics: Construction Site Safety, Construction Math, Hand Tools, Power Tools, Construction Drawings, Basic Rigging, Communication, Employability and Material Handling. The class is limited to 15 students. Another session will be offered in mid-May.

This program is looking for employers willing to provide students a 2-week internship. Will you help? This gives you first shot at hiring these workers!

The program is also looking for contractors who will add to the class with a 15-30 minute “show-and-tell” about your trade. Do a tailgate safety meeting, show off how you use drones or technology or demonstrate the advanced skills of your craft. This will bring the real world into the classroom… and give you a chance to meet the students in person. Will you help?

Again, VCE is helping coordinate. If you can help, contact Carrie at VCE. Email carrie@vceonline.com or call 530-343-1981.
