Are you attending high school or a technical school program?
FDOT’s Statewide Workforce Development Program works with school districts and industry partners each year to participate in the Florida Construction Career Days (CCD) events. These large-scale events give students around the state a sneak-peek into possible future careers in the road building industry.
At CCD, Florida high-school and technical-school students get fun, interactive experience with construction equipment, materials, learning labs, educational displays and more. They’ll find out about careers in road building – an industry that’s essential to providing and improving transportation for Florida residents and visitors. Students at these local, daylong events also get to talk with contractors and other industry veterans.
CCD events occur annually in Central Florida, Tampa, Northeast Florida, Northwest Florida and South Florida. The events are coordinated by the Florida Transportation Builders’ Association and industry partners – the Florida Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration – in conjunction with Florida school districts.
The events can inspire students’ interest in a variety of construction careers. At local events, they’ll “get a feel for the field” by operating machinery, “working” with asphalt and rebar, and other activities. And by participating in CCD, students also could become candidates for the Student Construction Internship and/or the Student Construction Career Academy.
