GCI IS LOOKING FOR TEACHERS
Have you ever considered being a teacher? Have you ever thought it was a possibility for you? Even if you answered no, consider this: many GCI teachers started out only working in their trade, and didn't start teaching until much later in their careers! GCI gave them the tools to effectively teach the journeymen of tomorrow! Read more below to find out how you can get involved. You could even get $300 if you refer a teacher to us!
CAREERS IN CONSTRUCTION MONTH
THE YEAR OF THE APPRENTICE
Did you know that October is Careers in Construction Month? Each year, the construction industry recognizes and highlights the opportunities that a career in construction can offer. GCI will be recognizing 2021 as "The Year of the Apprentice"! We will be highlighting some of our top apprentices, past and present, and recognizing their incredible efforts as GCI students! Be sure to follow GCI on social media to keep up!
