Georgia Contractors Target Recruitment

May 15, 2024
Initiatives offer a blend of academic and practical simulator training.

The Georgia Highway Contractors Association (GHCA) is looking to recruit young workers into the industry with two initiatives: one for attracting operators and another for other jobs building roadways in the state. 

According to an article from Transportation Builder, GHCA's Heavy Equipment Operator (HEO) Program helps spark interest in high school students. Launched in 2022, it initially rolled out in six schools across the state and grew to include nine additional high schools and one technical college by 2023.
