N. TX Job Corps Event is a Success
HPIP is wrapping up its 2018 Training Workshops. More recently, HPIP traveled to Dallas, TX to work with the North Texas Job Corps on the first-ever collaborative event to shorten the labor shortage gap in the insulation industry. Nearly 30 students attended the job fair style event to receive high performance training from some of the top instructors in the industry. We were joined by instructors from Knauf Insulation, Owens Corning, CertainTeed Machine Works, and IDI. Following the training sessions, students had the opportunity to interview with local contractors, USI Champion Insulation and Allied Insulation to get a sense of what they are looking for in employees. Once students complete their Job Corps training they will be ready for hire by industry professionals and begin the first of many steps towards closing the labor shortage gap.
“Getting to talk to all of the instructors and different people that HPIP had brought out to us was really inspirational because almost no one had said, ‘This is what I set out to do with my life’ but instead, ‘I started over here and now I’m here’ and it really put into perspective for me how far working your way up will get you when you start low and work hard.” – N. TX Job Corps Student
On October 24th, HPIP and Long Beach Job Corps will co-host our final workshop and employer-matching event. To become part of the high performance family and solve your labor shortage, register at www.hpipros.org/california-training
