Goodwill, in partnership with Lowe’s, offers a Construction and Weatherization Training Program designed to help participants acquire the skills and knowledge needed to embark on rewarding careers in residential or industrial construction or related fields. Participants attend classes four days per week for four weeks at Goodwill’s facility at 7237 Cockrill Bend Boulevard in West Nashville. Three hours of each day are spent in the classroom, and three are spent in the workshop. The course covers safety, construction math, hand and power tools, blueprints, rigging, weatherization, communication, forklift operation, employability skills and more. Graduates receive certification from the National Center for Construction, Education and Research (NCCER) and an OSHA 10 safety certification.
We are excited to announce that as of November 1, 2022 we have agreed to become a job partner with this program! Our Talent & Training Manager, Jake Wisecup, provided practical safety tips about fall protection, rigging, and excavations during one of their classes on November 1st to kick off our partnership.
