Training Opportunities in Construction

Energy Construction

Construction jobs offer a wide variety of opportunities; whether you like building things or taking a sledgehammer to them, there’s probably a construction job that will appeal to you. Highway construction, tunnel excavation, residential construction, commercial projects and demolition are just a small sample of the many positions available.

Each job comes with unique working conditions; from simple loading and unloading, to challenging heights, or exposure to hazardous materials, construction workers need to be prepared for anything! While projects can pause for inclement weather, you will need to be willing to work in heat, cold, rain, and just about anything else Mother Nature can throw at you. In return, you get a rewarding career that offers incredible variety, and provides plenty of opportunities to pursue the specialties that interest you.

CIW works with several trade groups to provide apprentice-level training programs. Presently CIW works with Iowa Laborers, Sheet Metal Workers, Insulators, Master Builders of Iowa, and Plumbers and Steamfitters.
