Hello. This is Kurt Busch. I have been blogging on this site for a while about the importance of quality training being available for the people in the water works industry. The reason is that I used to be involved in the industry while living in Las Vegas. I would like to talk about another issue facing the industry today.
I have noticed over the years that there are fewer and fewer kids going into the trades. Since I got my start in the trades, it is an issue I care about. There is a lot of value in working in a rewarding field that fits you.
Water Works Industry Solutions has partnered with ACE, a high school in northern Nevada focused on the trade industries to provide them with tools they need to make sure the next generation is well-trained and prepared. I have been really impressed with the program and would encourage anyone to look into helping.
Check out their web site at http://www.acehighschool.org/ to learn more about the school and what they are providing to the community.
That’s all for now. Check back soon for more blogs.
