The Greater Michigan Construction Academy (GMCA) honored 53 students this past May as they graduated from seven different construction trades including electrical, carpentry, pipefitting, insulation, plumbing and HVAC.
GMCA, a nationally registered program with the NCCER and the Federal Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT), offers continuing education programs for craft workers, foremen, supervisors, project managers, superintendents and company management, providing opportunities for career growth in the construction industry.
Fifty-two of the graduates attended classes at the organization’s Midland Training Center and one studied out of the academy’s Lansing, Mich., location.
“These students are the future of our industry,” said Michelle Revette, vice president of Associated Builders and Contractors Greater Michigan Chapter. “They are a vital part of our community and our economy and need to be commended for their accomplishments.”
