The HBASC has embraced the National Association of Home Builders - Home Builders Institute Pre-Apprentice Certification Training Program (HBI PACT) 
and re-branded it as the  HBASC Trades N Training Program. 
We have coordinated the adoption of this program in Durango & Bayfield High School shop classes. 
Program highlights include:
  • Offers students the opportunity to gain experience & certification in a variety of construction related trades including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, building construction technology, and others
  • Integrates contextual, work-based learning with vocational and academic skills training in the classroom;
  • Includes employability and life skills, career development, and on-the-job training. 
This program will not only assist our industry in providing a skilled workforce, but we will also be providing our youth career opportunities that they may not otherwise have access to.
