The HBASC Trades N Training Program utilizes the Home Builders Institute (HBI) PACT “pre-apprenticeship certification training” program offering students a range of stackable credentials leading to employment and successful careers in the building industry. Managed through our Youth Investment Committee, this program will not only assist our industry in providing a skilled workforce, but we are also offering our youth career opportunities that they may not otherwise have access to. Piloting the program at Durango and Bayfield High Schools, we brought a HBI PACT trainer to Durango last September to certify instructors at Durango and Bayfield High Schools. Course curriculum has been implemented in both shop classes and each school is building a tiny home to enable students to capture hands on experience in multiple certification modules.
