Workforce Development

UCOR maintains a highly skilled and effective cleanup workforce through training and professional development of current workers. We are also creating opportunities for the development and placement of the next generation of workers. Our workforce development model focuses on three key partners:

  •   Labor Workforce
  •   Professional Staff
  •   K-12 Students

Our efforts have included working with local higher education institutions to sponsor new programs, providing professional training opportunities for current employees, and sponsoring an annual educational mini-grant program that funds STEM-focused curricula for K-12 students.

UCOR also partners with national and local trade unions to help young adults and individuals seeking new career paths to learn about construction craft opportunities. Through Apprenticeship Readiness Programs, participants are given the chance to “try out” union crafts and the construction industry before selecting a specific career trade. In 2018, UCOR hosted the inaugural East Tennessee Apprenticeship Readiness Program with 48 graduates.
