FLUOR Craft Skills Scholarship

What is the Scholarship Program?

In support of the economic recovery of local communities affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and to rebuild the region, Fluor has established a scholarship program. 1000 individuals in the Louisiana Gulf Coast Region will have the opportunity to participate in a construction training program that will enable them to:

• Obtain employment

• Establish a life long career

  The scholarship program is a 2 1/2 week entry-level construction training program.

  Individuals enrolling in the program will participate in a comprehensive curriculum certified through the National Center for Education and Research (NCCER). The classes are held Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4pm. Upon completion of the program the successful candidate will be placed on the NCCER national registry and be assisted with job placement.

FLUOR Craft Skills Scholarship QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


1.) Do I have to be a high school graduate or have a GED?

No. While it is preferred, not competing high school will not disqualify you for

the program. However, there will be information available for anyone that would

like to pursue completion of the GED or complete basic education needs.


2.) Is this for anyone?

Yes, no one will be discriminated against. Skilled people are needed regardless of genders and cultures to fill the demands and shortages in the entire U.S. This

program is intended to assist those displaced by the recent storms to learn and/or improve skills for better opportunities for job leading to long -term career growth in the area. Fluor is an equal employment opportunity company.


3.) Will day care provided for single parents?

No, unfortunately we do not have the staff or facilities qualified to provide that

level of support.


4.) Will the training guarantee a job?

No, but without training you are not likely to get a job providing long term career

growth within the industry. To rebuild the Gulf Coast it will take many people

with skills and abilities in all areas of construction and maintenance. Skilled craft

people will be needed to rebuild residential areas, roads, and bridges, utilities, and industrial plants.


5.) Where will I be working?

Jobs will be available throughout the Gulf Coast. Your home community will

have needs of skilled people to rebuild. From there other areas will need the same support. Once communities and areas along the Gulf Coast are built jobs will continue to be available to maintain the area and build more as the economy

grows. The skills learned in the training program are needed all across the U.S.


6.) Will I be paid to go to school?

No, unfortunately funds are not available for this type of support. If you are

receiving financial support now, it will not end due being enrolled in this program


8). How long is the training?

Depends on prior experience and the craft you select for training. The initial

program is scheduled for approximately 102.5 hours of classroom and shop

activities.


9). Will I get a job right a-way?

It will depend upon availability of jobs. However, you will be placed on a priority

list for hiring.
