Simaima Suba, 19, of Fairfield, is one of the 19 classmates who graduated from the first Youth Pre-Apprenticeship Construction Training Program on Friday.
For the last five weeks, she has trained in four industries certifications, HAZWOPER certification, and fundamentals in construction, concrete-pouring techniques, trades math, fitness and more, according to Leonard Gonzales, executive director of the Laborers Training Center.
“I hope to try concrete work first,” Suba said. “I am so excited. I can’t wait to get started.”
She was also interested in hazardous waste work and thought that would be something new, exciting and dangerous.
