LATTC – CMU Welding

Local District Resident

,

Prior to starting classes at LATTC, Ruben was working as a general laborer in a recycling plant.  It was hard work with low pay so he signed up for welding classes at LATTC while still working full time.  Getting a sponsorship through BuildLACCD’s Local Worker Hire Program is great because it’ll help him continue to provide for my family now that the has completed the program. Juggling school and work was easy but the opportunity to start in construction was worth it.
