GCA Trades Academy will present level completion certificates to students on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 11 am.
The venue will be the GCA Trades Academy Tiyan Training Facility at 506 Mariner Avenue in Tiyan (next door to the Department of Education main office).
Founded in September 2006, 4,200 students have been trained at the GCA Trades Academy.
The GCA Trades Academy offers a wide variety of training programs including electrical, plumbing, carpentry, HVAC, construction craft laborer, safety, project management, welding, and heavy equipment operation. With classes open to all abilities and levels, the GCA Trades Academy strives to improve skills and empower the region’s workforce.
The GCA Trades Academy was established to provide a nationally recognized industry skills training center (credentialed by NCCER), support U.S. Department of Labor recognized apprenticeship training programs, and to support the skilled labor needs of construction contractors and related industries doing business on Guam.
Instructors are local construction professionals trained to teach the NCCER program.
The GCA Trades Academy is closely associated with, but independent of, the Guam Contractors Association. The Guam Contractors Association created the GCA Trades Academy in 2006 and incorporated it as an independent, non-profit organization. Please refer to the GCA Trades Academy as the “GCA Trades Academy” not the Guam Contractors Association Trades Academy.
