Preparing Educators with Construction/Heavy Highway Teacher Training
ICI recently joined several industry partners at Hamilton Heights High School (HHHS) for civil construction/heavy highway teacher training. ICI’s Manager of Talent Development Julia Polston spoke with teachers from multiple Indiana high schools about ICI and opportunities for their students in the highway, heavy, and utility industries. Helping prepare the next generation of road workers is no easy task, but the team at WIR has been helping create better ways to expose educators, parents, and students to a plethora of construction jobs.
Is the SEAL Program Right for My School?
HHHS has had much success with its Civil Engineering Certified State Earn and Learn (SEAL) program, and other schools are implementing similar programs. Sharing lessons learned, HHHS hosted the teacher training which included a visit to the HHHS Sandbox, a tour of an asphalt plant, experience with equipment simulators, introductions to industry partners, and much more. By helping to establish a better educational infrastructure that points young kids in our direction, ICI is helping to build the workforce of tomorrow.
