Yerington/WNC construction management students Sam Cota, Pedro Maldonado, Alexis Mata Ramos, Michael Sam, Ryan Barnes and Luke Stokes completed the OSHA 10-hour safety course and the National Center for Construction Education and Research safety and core curriculum certifications during fall semester.

During the upcoming spring semester, this group of students will complete the NCCER Basic Craft Laborer and Basic Crew leadership certifications while earning college credits toward the Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Construction Management at WNC.

“They have been exposed to work ethic traits, numerous construction career paths, industry resources and other personal and professional development information that will set them apart from other applicants after graduation,” said WNC construction instructor Robert Ford.
