Construction Project Management Estimation Training Program
Construction Project Management Training Program
In addition, McCarthy has joined forces with the National Association for Equal Justice in America (NAEJA) and Centennial High School in Compton to provide a student intern and construction project management training program for high school students interested in a career in construction. This program is intended to provide an educational experience for the students, as well as to aid the shrinking construction industry workforce by exposing a new generation to the field of construction. Projections show that the construction industry is expected to have a shortage of skilled workers as the baby boomer generation (1946-1964) retires over the next five years. In addition, many construction industry professionals and trades-people left the industry during the economic downturn which further exacerbates the worker shortage.
