We are thrilled to announce the first graduating class of our Department of Transportation-Highway Construction Skills Training (DOT-HCST) program!

The program, which ran from March 26 – May 10, 2024, provided participants with a comprehensive curriculum to prepare them for careers in highway construction. The program included:

  • Extensive equipment training
  • Contractor and trade presentations
  • First Aid
  • CPR
  • Flagger certification
  • OSHA 30 training
  • DL permit instruction
  • And more

All 13 graduates had the opportunity to test for CDL general knowledge and air brake certifications while receiving a stipend during training. WRTP | BIG STEP is also committed to providing job placement support after graduation.

We’d like to thank Employment Milwaukee, especially Sara Rogers, for their technical assistance and support throughout the program.

We will continue to develop our programs with additional partnerships and job shadowing experiences to provide the best training experiences possible.

Congratulations, graduates!
