“The current labor shortage is obvious in the crane and rigging field, and it is our duty and obligation to inform our youth about opportunities available for their future,” said Billy Cook, CICB’s Director of Sales. “We’re excited to play a part in educating and encouraging individuals pursuing career opportunities in challenging and rewarding fields.”
The event will be held in Baton Rouge, LA on November 15, 2017, and will consist of hands-on rotating workshops and testimonials from workers who have first-hand experience. This is a national careers initiative to address the surplus of jobs, show that roles can be well paid, and that there is an alternative to college and university degrees. More than 2,500 individuals have attended these events so far. The conference is free to attend, but requires pre-registration.
