Highway Construction Careers Training Program

In collaboration with the Federal Highway Administration and community colleges statewide, IDOT’s Highway Construction Careers Training Program (HCCTP) provides training and skill improvement opportunities that assure the increased participation of minority groups, disadvantaged persons and women in all phases of the highway construction industry.

IDOT strongly encourages contractors and their approved sub-contractors to hire minority, women and disadvantaged individuals from the HCCTP to help meet workforce and trainee goals. Graduates are well-trained and ready to become productive entry-level construction workers, or even potential DBEs.

HCCTP Success Story

“IDOT’s HCCTP program offers participants opportunities that are overwhelmingly in their favor. Every day is a learning experience designed to make you a jack of all trades. I owe my occupation to this program, and to the coordinators and instructors who believed in me.”
