Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services, Inc. (CMJTS) is hosting a FREE training to obtain your 30-hour OSHA card. This training will offer justice-involved individuals the tools to prepare for the construction workforce and supervisory positions. Construction can provide excellent income and job security. And getting OSHA-certified shows employers that you’re motivated, improving upon yourself, and driven to learn.
Pathways to Prosperity (P2P) is a collaboration between several state and local partners, including workforce development, business, adult basic education, and continuing education providers. The Pathways to Prosperity approach connects education and training programs and wrap-around services to support participants as they advance to higher employment levels.
Navigator — The role of the navigator is key to the success of any career pathways program. A CMJTS navigator assists P2P students with career planning, developing a resume, coaching how to address criminal history with a potential employer, and providing access to support services such as transportation assistance, paid work experience, and job placement.
Bridge Course — Bridge programs allow learners to start from their current skill level and develop the basic skills they need to begin the training program that is their ultimate goal. Students attend a “bridge” course offered by Adult Basic Education (ABE) that gets them “training-ready.” The bridge class focuses on how to read a tape measure, key increments used in measuring and identifying the most common fractions to memorize, the ability to compute fractions quickly and review the formulas for area for basic geometric shapes.
Integrated Course — The P2P grant will provide an OSHA 30-Hr Hazard Awareness course that supports the construction industry. As a critical partner in this project, FireSAFE (training vendor) will provide high-quality OSHA Outreach training necessary to help increase participant success. This outreach training covers an overview of a worker’s hazards on a job site. Training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control, and prevention, not OSHA standards. Outreach classes also provide overview information regarding OSHA, including workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint.

- CareerForce Center Monticello – 406 E. 7th St.
Two 4-day weeks of training: M-Th, 11/28 through 12/08 or
- CareerForce Center Hutchinson – 2 Century Ave.
