The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Illinois Community College Board created this program to increase the number of minorities, women and disadvantaged individuals working on IDOT projects. Those 15 students who are selected will learn essential skills for working in the highway construction or other building trades. The class is structured so that half of the 13 weeks is spent in the classroom and half is hands-on with shop and construction projects.
Anyone interested in this program and a career in construction is invited to start the application process by attending one of our orientation sessions.
