Two employees of Adaptive Construction Solutions, Inc. (ACS), Houston, Texas, have competed NCCER’s new Construction Workforce Development Professional training and certification program under SEAA’s Craft Training Sponsorship. Carlos Pulido, Executive Vice President, and Karen Champion, Apprenticeship Manager, received the certification in order to distribute the training internally to ACS staff who recruit veterans into construction apprenticeships.
“We hope the training will give them greater insight into the construction industry, NCCER certifications, and apprenticeships, as part of their own professional development and to help them provide information, advice, and guidance to prospective apprentices,” said Champion.
“This is the first NCCER certification of this kind to be completed under SEAA’s sponsorship. Our members are dedicated to the training and development of industry professionals and we are proud to be able to assist them in their efforts,” said Tim Eldridge, President of Educational Services Unlimited and SEAA’s Craft Training and Assessment Coordinator.
ACS, which hosted SEAA's first Career Fair last year, is the recipient of an $8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. ACS is one of 30 organizations to receive funds from the Apprenticeship Building America grants.
