Northeast Regional Council of Carpenter’s (NRCC) Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Ballantyne states in a recent New Jersey Business Magazine article: “As baby boomers retire from the construction industry, we need new workers in their 20s to 30s who are interested in a great career in carpentry. Currently, NRCC is recruiting in high schools and vo-techs and working with local, social and career organizations to identify young adults who are interested in starting a career.”
The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters continually trains a workforce of highly skilled and effective carpenters throughout the state. The NRCC's new, cutting-edge training facility in Edison, NJ, which is slated to provide innovative technologies and classroom experiences to thousands of apprentice carpenters in New Jersey, will serve as a hub for young New Jerseyans interested in starting or continuing a lucrative career in carpentry.
“This five-year education is provided to individuals at no cost and is coupled with in-the-field training. It’s a great choice for millennials who want a career with good pay, health and retirement benefits and no college debt whatsoever,” said EST Ballantyne.
