If you are considering a career in the construction trades, the BuildNV Core Construction Program may be for you!

The BuildNV Core Construction Program is an 80-hour program designed to train workers in construction, building maintenance, related trades in our communities, and career technical education, helping to address some much-needed workforce challenges. View the brochure here!

Workforce challenges are identified by industries across Nevada. Many in our communities are looking for alternatives to a traditional college education for career opportunities. Northeastern Nevada Regional Development Authority (NNRDA), Great Basin College (GBC), JOIN Inc., Nevada Builders Alliance, Lithium Nevada and other community leaders have worked together to design workforce training options addressing needs in our diverse communities.

Work on this program began in the fall of 2019 through the founding efforts of Desert Research Institute Nevada Stem Networks, Nevada Builders Alliance, Northeastern Nevada Regional Development Authority, Lithium Nevada and Great Basin College. BuildNV quickly expanded to a broad coalition of communities, businesses and organizations recognizing the need for a skilled trades workforce in rural Nevada and an organized, accredited program to deliver training.
