Highway Heavy Commercial Construction


Do you want to help build one of the Twin Cities new sports stadiums…or perhaps get trained in bridge and highway construction? These options–and more–could be available to you in a new career in Highway Heavy Commercial Construction (HHCC). In just 20 weeks, Summit Academy will prepare you for these high-paying in-demand jobs and will help you find employment for the construction season.

The Certified Pre-Apprentice HHCC program is offered in partnership with the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters Union.

Summit’s 100 Hard Hats program is designed to provide students with job readiness skills in the construction trade through classroom and hands-on training completed in two 10-week phases: Phase I (general industry training) and Phase II (hands-on training). Training is administered by Journey-level carpentry instructors with more than 70 years of combined experience in the field.

Upon completion of the training program, students will have gained marketable job readiness skills, and are ready to begin a career in the residential and commercial construction industry. Summit also helps students learn how to enter a trade union which makes workers eligible for additional wages, education and other employment benefits.
