Construction Trades Day is an interactive event geared toward educating local students on the types of career opportunities available in the Construction Industry, highlighting the increasing demand for these high-skill, high-wage positions.
Ephrata, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
In 2014, Landmark Homes President, Cliff Weaver, proposed a unique way to educate local youth about the shortage of skilled labor and the opportunities for ‘Gold Collar’ careers in the Construction Industry right here in their hometown.
With that concept in mind, Landmark Homes and Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology came together to create the first-of-its-kind Construction Trades Day-- an interactive event geared toward educating local students, parents, counselors, and educators on the types of career opportunities available in the Construction Industry, highlighting the increasing demand for these high-skill, high-wage positions.
The 3rd annual Construction Trades Day will take place on September 28th, 2016. During the event students and participants will be guided through the process of new home construction via presentations and live demonstrations from local trade professionals. Career fields that will be represented include drafting and design, carpentry, HVAC, product installation, concrete and masonry, storm water management, land development, and heavy equipment operations.
The 2016 Construction Trades Day is sponsored by McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC in addition to various local trade vendors and mortgage companies. The event will be held rain or shine at Landmark’s Home Towne Square community in Ephrata. Over 250 students are expected to be in attendance.
