Where: Hood Construction Company - 1050 Shop Road, Suite A, Columbia, SC 29201
Cost: Free for all! Registration required. Beverages will be provided. (water, soda)
Join us in-person on Monday, October 26 for a hands-on, personal tour and see for yourself why 85+ tours have been booked since the trucks launch only a month ago!
Don't miss your chance for a hands on tour inside the truck!
The 53-foot, double-expandable 18-wheeler offers students and parents the chance to learn more about skilled trades and the career opportunities that are abundant in South Carolina, including thousands of well-paying construction jobs now available.
Inside, visitors will feel as if they have walked into an upscale arcade where they will be scored on how well they can drive a commercial truck, weld, operate a piece of heavy equipment, and run a forklift. There are also virtual reality games that teach the techniques of carpentry and diesel mechanics. But, most importantly, visitors will walk away with resources and information on how they can begin a career that is essential and in high demand.
