Out-of-school youth between the ages of 17-24 can receive training and credentials in CORE, carpentry, electrical, and collision repair through Bishop State’s Fix It program. Participants are trained for entry-level positions in the construction industry.

After completing an initial5-week workforce readiness course (CORE) and passing a drug screening, successful candidates will be awarded $300 to buy tools for their selected course of study. Participants will also be paid a stipend of $20 per day while completing a more focused study and on-the-job training with potential employers.

CORE, carpentry and electrical have to be taken together, which last about 15-weeks. After completing these three programs, the participants will obtain a National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) credential. The Collision Repair completers will obtain an Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR). The collision program lasts 25-weeks.

Class Offerings

The next class begins on Tuesday, Jan 21, 2020. A limited number of spots are still available. Those who are interested in participating must apply at Bishop State's Southwest Campus for an initial interview where they will fill out an application and be given additional information about the program.


Fix It is a collaboration of Bishop State Community College, the Southwest Alabama Partnership for Training and Education and the U.S. Department of Labor.
