Carpenter Apprentice Trenten Mead was invited to join Governor Phil Scott yesterday at the Central VT Career Center to talk about his path to a career in construction. In 2023, Trenten participated in the Commercial Craft Apprenticeship (CCA) program which is offered through Associated Builders and Contractors NH/VT and developed in partnership with local contractors. The press conference highlighted the importance of training/apprenticeship programs, such as the CCA program.
Trenten was hired as a full-time employee upon completion of the CCA program and his graduation from The Center for Technology Essex in June of 2023. A new class of apprentices started the CCA program on November 17th, including four students from ReArch, Cody Blake, Ollie Hurd, Ted Sheahan, and Dakota Ward. We will be following the progress of apprentices closely throughout the program. Stay tuned for updates.
