HCCTP Overview

Each community college holds one to five training sessions per year. Individuals receive intensive training in highway construction-related skills, such as mathematics for the trades, job site readiness, carpentry, concrete flatwork, blueprint reading orientation, first aid/AED/CPR, introduction to tools, forklift operation, OSHA 10 certification, and more.

Each community college helps its graduates obtain placement in Illinois’ highway construction trade unions, apprenticeship programs, and/or with IDOT highway construction contractors. IDOT and the participating community colleges do not guarantee employment upon a trainees’ graduation from HCCTP.
