Oregon Tradeswomen Empowers Women

Hello Friends,

Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. empowers women to enter into high skill, high wage careers in construction through our FREE, seven-week Trades and Apprenticeship Career Class.

Please help us spread the word about our free program so even more women can get started into satisfying, living wage careers.  Here are the basics:

  • Class meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. -4:30 p.m. and includes classroom training (including 5 hours of green job training), hands-on construction work, field trips, valuable industry certifications, strength/fitness training, construction math and measurement, and career counseling.

  • Our next class starts on August 10, 2010. Information Sessions about what to expect from the class are held at the PCC Metro One Stop and attending is thefirst step to entering our class.  Info sessions are held twice a month.

Women can call us to sign up for the next info session at 503-335-8200 x 21 OR sign up online at:

  • We do require a GED and prioritize participants that have a driver’s license.  However, interested women should contact us as we often counsel people about what goals to work toward to be more successful in the industry.

Again, thanks for your help in spreading the word and please contact me if you have any questions about the class.
