Trades sponsor Women Building Minnesota info sessions

Women considering a career in the construction industry can learn what it takes – and why it pays – to become a successful tradeswoman at two Women Building Minnesota information sessions next month.

Sponsored by the St. Paul and Minneapolis Building Trades councils, Women Building Minnesota is a registered apprenticeship program that offers women an opportunity to enter the high-demand specialty trades of plumbing, electrical work, sheet metal, iron work, pipefitting and sprinklerfitting.
