HomeWorks Construction Employment and Training Program
HomeWorks Construction Employment and Training Program (HCET) is a paid, on-the-job, residential construction theory and practice training for reentering ex-offenders who originate from, reside in, or reside within a community in which ICHDE is conducting affordable housing development and/or community revitalization efforts.
HCET provides a classroom training period utilizing the Home Builders Institute (HBI) curriculum. Upon completing HBI classroom coursework, trainees will transition to on-site, construction training. Locations fluctuate among the construction sites under ICHDE’s site control and in some phase of redevelopment/renovation. ICHDE contractors provide on-site, on-the-job training, with supervision of an HCET Trainer. Successful completion results in industry-recognized HBI certification(s).
HCET training course incorporates:
- 90 hours of classroom, hands on, and site training
- Thirteen weeks of paid on the job home-building/construction training
- Instruction in:
- Building Trades Safety and First Aid
- Construction Math
- Tools and Construction Materials
- Resume development
- Assistance with job placement
