Salida School District Construction Trades Program

Working collaboratively, the Salida School District and CCEDC have developed a construction trades program which is now credentialed through Colorado Mountain College. Students enrolled in the program receive on-site skills training, safety certification, and workforce readiness leading to a career in the growing field of construction and trades.

Colorado Succeeds, a non-profit coalition of businesses committed to improving education, recently visited Salida to learn more about our path to success regarding innovative workforce development initiatives.
