Let’s Build Our Workforce

BuildStrong Academy of Colorado is a collaborative, industry-driven training organization created to solve the construction industry’s need for skilled workers.

When you support the Academy, you support the entire construction industry.

Here are some ways builders and contractors can take action:

Post your open positions on our job board.

We have partnered with JobsToBuild, a residential construction jobs platform. With its easy-to-use job search and job posting, and sophisticated jobs-to-candidate matching, JobsToBuild connects employers and job seekers better, faster, and at no cost. Create your business profile today and post your open positions to match with qualified candidates quickly!

Attend a career fair.

To prepare our adult students for job interviews, we host career fairs once a month that allow our students to practice speaking with real employers. Oftentimes, the employers who attend these job fairs hire qualified students who they meet at these events.

Be a guest speaker.

Each week, we invite leaders in the industry to give a career talk to Construction Skills Bootcamp students. This is an opportunity for the speakers to share their personal stories and to recruit talented workers.

Hire job-ready graduates.

Every month, about 20 skilled adult students graduate from Construction Skills BootcampBasics in ConcreteConstruction Management, and Estimating courses. We are always looking for new employers to hire our knowledgeable graduates.

Train your employees.

Employers are invited to sponsor their employees’ professional development by sending them to Construction Management and Estimating programs, as well as basic skills training through Construction Skills Bootcamp.

Engage your sub-contractors.

Invite the Academy to speak at your trade meetings. Encourage your sub-contractors to be part of the solution, and support them when they do!
