Are you interested in learning basic construction skills, working with local contractors on community projects, or improving your potential to find a job?

Inspired by the NFL draft, the Construction Combine allows trainees to demonstrate their skills and learn new ones. This is a great opportunity to help your community by meeting with local contractors and learning their specific construction needs. And you could possibly get hired to come work with them!

The Combine will take place on April 10 - April 11, 2024 from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Home Depot in Chubbuck, ID.

On day one, trainees will be placed on a team and will participate in training sessions, covering several topics including:

  •     Framing
  •     Concrete
  •     Electrical
  •     Plumbing
  •     Drywall
  •     Flooring
  •     Siding
  •     Welding

On day two, trainees will demonstrate their new skills by building sheds with area contractors. The sheds will be donated to local disabled veterans. Once the sheds are built, the trainees will have time to ask questions of the contractors who are looking for good employees they can hire.

This event is one of a kind! You will learn new skills, rub shoulders with local construction industry leaders, and eat some great food.
