The construction industry needs able-bodied workers, will you be one of them?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you've likely noticed that Colorado has had a surplus of transplants and housing developments popping up all over the state. With people moving here faster than construction specialists can build, the supply is struggling to meet the demand. To help remedy this, the Colorado Homebuilding Academy was founded to prepare skilled construction workers who are ready to build new houses.

The Colorado Homebuilding Academy provides lessons from experts who possess decades of experience in carpentry, framing, plumbing, and other specialties to youths and adults looking to work in the construction industry. Most of the courses are free to those who are pursuing a career in Colorado's construction industry and can be completed in a matter of weeks to get their students out in the workforce. Each course is taught on location and the lessons are styled to be hands-on and apply to the construction needs of today's market.

Whether you're fresh out of high school or desire to pursue a career that gets you out of an office and onto a thriving job site, the Colorado Homebuilding Academy is worth consideration. Careers in construction provide a substantial livelihood, job satisfaction, and personal pride that few other careers could ever replicate. To be needed in an in-demand career is the equivalent of striking gold in today's society. Everyone needs a home, so you might as well be the one to build it and see your handiwork standing for years to come.
