LRWDB's Focus on Construction Supports Infrastructure Development

Posted at lrwib.org by WJ on 09/21/2017

As the country’s infrastructure gets rebuilt, it is the local workforce development system that ensures the maximum benefit of local hiring for our community.

The Construction industry already employs thousands of workers in Little Rock. Through partnerships in education and industry, the Little Rock Workforce Development Board (LRWDB) helps employers continue to find skilled workers for in-demand construction occupations like Construction Crafts (NCCER) and Refrigeration Mechanics and Installers (HVAC).

Educational partners in central Arkansas – like the Little Rock School District, Arkansas Construction Education Foundation, University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Job Corps, University of Arkansas Pulaski Tech (UA-PTC), Union & Employer Apprenticeships, and OSHA Certification Providers - provide training to help job seekers attain the required credentials.

Local employers – like Vratsinas Construction Company, CDI Contractors, a wide variety of construction sub-contractors, and local unions - provide employment opportunities for qualified candidates.
