We are in the process of setting up our next classes, having just finished up a class in Walker, MN on March 11, 2022. We are taking applications to establish our wait list and you can apply at the Empowerment Class link above or by going to www.fiveskies.org/bsc. We are planning to have a few more classes in Minnesota during 2022, if you applied already but it has been more than 6 months, we encourage you to re-apply so we know we have your most updated contact information. The coming classes will be a more general industry construction focused training and may not be specifically for any single project or trade.

Explore our Facebook page @5skiestraining for UPDATES on future trainings. We will continue to offer our Empowerment programming as we continue to work with other projects and organizations.
