This last Tuesday, students in Alex Jurek and Matt Eigen's classes attended the Construct Tomorrow workshop at River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. Students had the opportunity to try out a wide variety of careers that are available in the skilled construction trades.During the workshop, students learned about union apprenticeship training programs and the contractors that work with them. Apprenticeship training centers brought their tools and equipment on site and students actually got to try their hands at up to 18 different trades including tile-setting, block-laying, electrical work, iron work, plumbing, pipe-fitting, laborers, virtual welding, carpentry, sheet metal and others.
