We are in the process of setting up our next classes and the application can be done at the BSC link above or by going to www.fiveskies.org/bsc. We anticipate the class to begin in early Spring with a projected start of March 2022. This will be a more general industry construction focused training and not 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.
