North Baton Rouge Industrial Training Initiative

The North Baton Rouge Industrial Training InitiativeCourse Overview

The North Baton Rouge Industrial Training Initiative is a comprehensive training program where individuals will earn nationally recognized construction credentials from the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and receive skills and knowledge to work in the construction industry

Curricula


Core Curricula: 
This is a 72.5 hour course that prepares the trainee for the construction trade training by covering construction math, safety; hand and power tools, employability and communication skills, materials handling, and introduction to blueprint reading.  Upon completion, trainees can continue their training pathway by enrolling in one of three construction trades: electrical, pipefitting, and welding. 

Welding: This is a 450 hour program that will train students in the welding trade. 
Trainees will study welding safety, basic blueprint metallurgy and weld symbols, oxyfuel systems, cutting processes, SMAW- basic beads, SMAW- fillet welds, SMAW- v-groove bu/gouge welds.  This course will incorporate NCCER testing when applicable.  Upon completion of training, trainees that have shown mastery of a welding skill set will have the opportunity to have their welds tested for X-ray certification.

Electrical:  This is a 220 hour course that will train students in the electrical trades.  Trainees will be taught NCCER Electrical Level One and Level Two.  Trainees will learn electrical safety, electrical theory, device boxes, hand bending, raceways and fittings, electrical construction drawings, electrical test equipment, electrical circuits, alternating current, motor theory, conduit bending, conductor installations, grounding and bonding, circuit breakers and fuses, and control systems and fundamental concepts.  Those who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate from NCCER in Electrical Level One and Level Two. 

Pipefitting:  This is a 220 hour course that will train students in the pipefitting trades.  Trainees will be taught NCCER Pipefitting Level One and Level Two.  Trainees will learn pipefitting hand tools, oxyfuel cutting, motorized equipment, piping systems, drawing and detail sheets, identifying and installing valves, pipefitting trade math, threaded pipe fabrication, socket weld and butt weld pipe fabrication, rigging, aboveground and below ground pipe installation, hangers and supports, and testing piping systems and equipment.  Those who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate from NCCER in Pipefitting Level One and Level Two.

Job Placement

We will only focus our placement for Ready To Go! Students:  The Ready To Go! framework will monitor a student’s daily timeliness, safety, use of hand tools, use of PPE, housekeeping, and teamwork.  This framework is designed to be a fair and easy process for the instructors and most importantly to empower the students to be accountable for their own success.
