Highway Construction Careers Training Program (HCCTP)
The Illinois Department of Transportation, through the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), has established a Highway Construction Careers Training Program. The purpose of this program is to increase the total number of historically underutilized individuals working on Illinois Department of Transportation highway construction projects. Each community college will hold 8-week sessions (2-3 sessions per academic year) in which minorities, women and disadvantaged individuals will receive intensive training in highway construction-related skills, e.g. math for the trades, job readiness, technical skills coursework (carpentry, concrete flatwork, blueprint reading, site plans, site work, tools use, etc.) and OSHA 10 certification. Trainees will be provided assistance to become placed into Illinois’ highway construction trade unions, apprenticeship programs and/or with IDOT highway construction contractors.
