Highway Construction Skills Training (HCST)
HCST is a six week intensive training program that prepares workers for careers in the road construction industry. HCST also works with program graduates to find employment and ensure their continued success.
The HCST program works to create opportunity for groups historically underrepresented in the construction industry, including women and people of color.
HCST was previously called the Transportation Alliance for New Solutions (TrANS). The program was renamed in February of 2023.
HCST works with over two dozen partners across the state. Over 800 HCST graduates have been placed with employers as laborers or apprentices.
