Cid’s Story: NJ Build Pre-Apprenticeship Training (Video)

Cid shares her experience working as a pre-apprentice through NJ Build’s Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program with Project Impact and the New Jersey Reentry Corporation. The program trains individuals for careers in the construction trade unions, and pre-apprentices receive OSHA 10 certification, education preparation for union entrance exams, and linkage to union apprenticeships and job placement. Cid is one of 30 pre-apprentices who recently graduated from the program, having completed 240 hours of construction labor preparation in partnership with Jersey City Department of Public Works.
