Green for Greene Graduation & Hiring Event on Friday
The Missouri Job Center is hosting a graduation ceremony and hiring event for participants of the Green for Greene training program. The graduation is Friday, August 23, 2 pm, at The Fairbanks, 1126 N. Broadway, in Springfield. Councilwoman Phyllis Ferguson will be the guest speaker.
This unique training gives graduates 13 certifications to help them land environmental jobs and is provided free of charge through a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. After graduation, participants have the opportunity to talk with local environmental companies about employment at a job fair from 2:15-3:30.
“Several employers will be participating in the hiring event at the Fairbanks following graduation,” said program coordinator Wendy Graves. The graduates are as eager to secure a job as the companies are to hire them, she said.
The training which began in early July, includes certifications in OSHA 10, OSHA Hazwoper, trenching & excavation, confined space, lead abatement, lead renovation repair & paint, mold abatement, asbestos handler, forklift driver, silica, flagger, bloodborne pathogens and first aid/CPR.
