Metro Tech Holds Workforce Programs Tour

Posted by Communications at 9/7/2017

The Greater Chamber of Commerce and its Phoenix Forward initiative, held a Workforce Programs tour today with Phoenix Union.  The topic was Construction Trades.  The group began at the Linda Abril Educational Academy, and concluded with a tour of Metro Tech’s construction program and welding program.  Superintendent Dr. Chad Gestson and Metro Tech Principal Bryon Reynoso spoke, along with Chamber President Todd Sanders and Senator Steve Smith. A student panel of Metro construction students answered questions from Sanders and the audience. Construction is one of the focus areas of Phoenix Forward, because of the shortage of skilled workers.
