Construction Academy

St. Louis’ CCDI program offers local high school students the opportunity to participate in our Construction Academy. The CCDI Construction Academy brings students together once a month to discuss careers in construction and learn the soft skills needed to be successful in the industry.

Construction Academy: March 2019

CCDI took a field trip to tour Tarlton’s Northwest Healthcare Siteman Cancer Center project. The students began the day with presentations from BJC, Local 562, and from Tarlton’s Superintendent on the project, Mr. James Tillman.They then walked around the jobsite and learned about the most important part of the project, the radiation room. CCDI rounded out the day back in the educational trailer to learn CPR and play interactive construction simulation games. Thank you Tarlton for hosting a CCDI Saturday Academy!

Construction Academy: February 2019

CCDI students took to the road this past Saturday for a visit to L. Keeley Construction. The theme of the February Academy session was Adaptability. CCDI thanks Nathan Munie for presenting about pre-construction and to Derek Maschek for organizing the days events and giving us a tour of the company. CCDI is excited to partner with L. Keeley and ADB for future endeavors including our upcoming Career Fair on March 7th!

Construction Academy: January

At the January CCDI Construction Academy class, students focused on the Clayco trait of “Stamina.” Students then got to practice their public speaking skills by sharing their elevator pitches in front of their peers. After presenting their elevator pitches to the Construction Academy, the students got to do practice interviews with CCDI Build Our Future Scholarship recipients, Kyah and Trenton.
