AWW’s Tool & Equipment Series

THE SAW training session focuses on educating students on how to operate the tools and equipment that assist in creating a successful construction and renovation project.

Our belief is that understanding how to work these tools and where best to utilize them is a very important piece of the construct puzzle.

Problems faced in the industry

Lack of women in the construction industry

Lack of involvement from local and national construction companies

AWW Programs

AWW’s FCC program stands for Foundation Compulsory Courses.

The FCC program is an in-depth introduction program to the construction industry and the skilled trades.

Through the FCC program, students will be given an opportunity to learn about construction trades through hands-on class exercises, virtual reality learning and traditional in-class training.

The FCC program has been developed to give students an understanding of the industry so that they can decide whether a career in the construction trades is right for them.

By introducing students to the tools, employment opportunities, entrepreneurship opportunities that exist in this multi-billion dollar industry, students will have a firm grasp on their career as they move on to AWW’s pre-apprenticeship program courses and eventual career placement.
