CRT guarantees that 32 students will be enrolled and complete construction skills training during the more than three year grant period of performance.The Construction Plus training will also include Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) training for 20 students through Capital Community College; and a selection of certified classes and on-the-job training for 15 students through Goodwin College.Individuals that are interested in joining the YouthBuild program in Hartford should contact CRT right away at 860-560-5308, or via email: youthbuild@crtct.org
