On Monday, June 19th, Sargent Construction Academy started their second season and things are off to a great start. This year, 15 recent high school graduates joined us from around the state of Maine and started work as full time employees at Sargent Corporation. Over the next six weeks, they will learn about OSHA and MSHA, practice proper daily inspection and heavy equipment operation, demonstrate some general surveying techniques, and begin developing underground utility installation skills. They will also complete projects around our maintenance shop, at a nearby nonprofit, and for the training grounds we use behind our classroom. It is exciting to watch them continue to learn and develop skills as they grow professionally and begin careers in the construction industry. WELCOME ABOARD, CLASS OF 2017!
