Central Arizona College (CAC) began offering new Industrial Construction and Concrete Construction Certificate courses on Oct. 6, 2017. The classes for industrial construction, concrete construction, heavy equipment operator, structural welding and pipefitting are being offered on Fridays and Saturdays through the completion of the fall semester. Each certificate will require the completion of approximately 30 credits.

The course offerings meet National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) standards and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 30-hour requirements. Students who complete the Associate of Applied Science can go on to pursue a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Industrial Technology Management at Northern Arizona University or a related degree at universities throughout the state.

The workforce development partnership between Tempe-based general contractor Sundt Construction Inc. and CAC is providing opportunities for students to complete training in these two programs as well as heavy equipment operator, structural welding and pipefitting.

Sandra Zires, CAC career navigator said, “CAC and Sundt are working hand-in-hand to train students to fill in-demand skilled trade jobs. Through CAC, students have a link to employment with Sundt and a viable career path.”
