Chattahoochee Technical College is partnering with the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), HB NEXT and Cobb WorkSource Georgia to offer county residents free construction training.

The four-week, nationally accredited Construction Ready certification program prepares participants for employment opportunities available in the construction industry.

Construction Ready participants will receive hands-on construction training and, upon graduation, participate in a hiring fair that will connect them to some of Atlanta’s top construction companies.

All classes will be held at Chattahoochee Tech’s Marietta Campus, with lunch provided for program participants. Participants must be at least 18 years old, physically fit and able to pass a drug screening and criminal background check. For more information, visit
