In The Classroom
Classroom instruction both introduces and reinforces the skills students need for hands-on/job site experience, including instruction in:
- Tools and Construction Materials
- Vocabulary and terminology
Classroom based training stations are a uniquely valuable and motivating tool for students to hone their skills as they gradually gain confidence in their abilities.
What Jobsite Experience is Available and Why is it Important to the Student's Success?
Every instructor must provide an opportunity to students to participate in a project/rehab of an existing building, new construction and/or a community service experience.
This hands-on approach is integral to HBI's PACT success. It is particularly engaging as it gives the students the opportunity to gain knowledge in a manner that addresses their respective learning styles.
This "hard-skill" training:
- Increases the likelihood students will complete their instruction
- Helps students gain the construction skills needed to build a career
- Allows students to learn what it takes to obtain and retain a job
HBI has found that this hands-on approach has the additional benefits of increasing the student's self-esteem and responds to the need for immediate gratification.
HBI PACT has successfully merged residential construction theory and practice.
It is exposing students to a wide array of industry trades.
It is Building Careers.
It is Changing Lives.
