Job Placement after Training
It’s a familiar dilemma with any sort of professional training or education: How does one translate what they’ve learned into actual employment and experience in the field? When people talk about the “Catch-22” of employment and experience, it is precisely this that they are referring to. It can be a frustrating affair knowing that you are as qualified for employment as anybody else in the industry and yet being unable to procure steady employment.
While this problem exists even in the construction industry, we at the National Heavy Equipment Operators School take every possible step to assure you that you will not have to succumb to it. For starters, the training program at National is second to none; ours is a comprehensive two-part course that covers a wide variety of heavy equipment models and gives you the preparation and knowledge to operate them effectively. Additionally, National is the only accredited heavy equipment training facility in the United States. This means that a certificate of completion from National carries with it a certain weight; employers are familiar with and respectful of the heavy equipment training that National provides.
National is also intricately involved in the construction and heavy equipment industry, and thus we are able to assist our graduates in finding immediate employment far more effectively than other agencies or programs. Upon starting the resident portion of our heavy equipment-training program, students fill out pre-hire applications and have them distributed to their employers of choice while they are still training. Construction opportunities are abundant throughout the nation, from urban construction to rural highway renovation. National has ties to numerous companies and agencies across the United States, and we can help you find the best employment fit once you complete your training.
Once National helps you to get your foot in the door in the construction industry, you can rest assured that employment opportunities will be steady for the foreseeable future. Conservative estimates have the visible construction boom holding steady until at least 2012, and given the seemingly endless number of construction projects visible throughout any metropolitan or rural area, it is likely to persist for much longer. When you consider that heavy equipment operators accounted for roughly ten percent of the approximately 6.7 million construction-related jobs in 2002, the importance of adequate training and job placement becomes even more evident. The program at National Heavy Equipment Operators School is just what you need to assure you of your future financial stability.
