The Homes Builders Association of Saginaw is proud to announce its partnership with the Greater Michigan Construction Academy to offer General Building & Construction Training in Saginaw.
Classes begin February 9th at the GMCA training facility located at: 2775 Shattuck Rd., Saginaw, MI
General Building & Construction will give the basic knowledge and principles of carpentry, masonry, concrete finishing, electrical work, HVAC, and plumbing. Students will become skilled in different phases of a project from start to finish. Once completing this course, the trainee will be able to interpret construction drawings; perform quality concrete and brickwork, frame walls, ceilings, and floors of a structure, and install the proper wiring and piping for electrical and plumbing systems. Training will also include interior and exterior finishing. The General Building & Construction program has a focus in residential construction. Presentations will be given by local home builders to share their knowledge and expertise and give insight and support to students.
“The Greater Michigan Construction Academy is excited to bring a residential building program to the Saginaw area. By partnering with the HBA we are able to reach a group of individuals who are looking to go into home building. The need for skilled labor in both commercial and residential building trades is still on the rise, and we are proud to be able to offer both in the Great Lakes Bay Region.” – Stephanie Davis, Vice President of GMCA.

“Quality and professionalism is a strength of HBA members. If we can mentor and assist students in building trades classes such as the General Building & Construction offered by GMCA, we can provide dialogue with students to support their career endeavors. The home building industry is in need of highly skilled and trained professionals. The community needs talented workers; the future of home building lays in the generations to follow.” – Michelle Revette, Executive Officer of the Home Builders Association of Saginaw.
