16 Days Will Change Your Life! Our Construction Training Center offers a fast-paced, highly-focused program designed to give students the skills they need to be excellent candidates for entry-level and pre-apprentice construction positions. The Introduction to Construction and Building Trades (ICBT) program only takes 16-days (120-hours) and introduces you to several different trades while emphasizing critical manual skills and industry interaction. Curriculum is based on industry input and employer feedback. Certifications include an overall certificate of ICBT completion, CPR, First Aid, AED, and OSHA-10. Curriculum is licensed by the State of Minnesota’s Office of Higher Education and is WIOA certified by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (MN DEED). Graduates can benefit from introductions and/or referrals to employers for interviews and employment opportunities. Graduates receive a tool belt, a basic tool set, and a gift certificate for steel-toe boots from Red Wing Shoes. In addition to the ICBT program, we also offer a Warehouse Forklift class--one day certification (7.5 hours) at our Burnsville facility.
