Oleta Partners Announces Free Construction Training Program with CBT College
We’re happy to announce that Oleta Partners, developer of SoLē Mia, has partnered with CBT College to offer free construction training to North Miami Senior High School seniors.
Managed by the Local Preference Office, the program is part of Oleta Partners’ commitment to providing opportunities that support the local community and that promote growth in the industry. The program will help address the shortage of skilled laborers in the construction industry by fostering a new generation of qualified construction workers.
Beginning March 5, 20 students will take courses in Building Design Construction. Over the course of seven months, they will be introduced to different construction trades including carpentry, masonry and plumbing.
Upon successful completion of the program, each student would have earned 21 college credits and will receive a diploma in Building Construction Technology. With their training and diploma, they will be prepared to enter the workforce as building construction technician or assistant.
To kick off the program, an orientation was held on Monday, February 26. Check out images from the event below.
