North Idaho Building Contractors Association and Home Depot have teamed up for a 2-day event to introduce the building industry trades to local students.
Construction Combine, designed by Idaho State University and partnered with Home Depot, is held throughout Idaho. As the demand for homes in our area continues to grow, NIBCA recognizes the need for a strong workforce to keep up with the housing demands.
Students from Coeur d’ Alene, Post Falls and Lakeland school districts have the opportunity to learn from local professionals about plumbing, electrical, framing, roofing, concrete, drywall, siding, and masonry trades. The event starts with safety training and then continues with the students spending one-hour learning from each of the professionals about their trade. The second-day students use what they learned the first day to construct 8’ x 10 ‘ sheds. The sheds are donated to area veterans.
