Fluor Opens Craft Training Center on U.S. Gulf Coast

IRVING, Texas & HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE:FLR) announced today that it has opened a U.S. Gulf Coast craft training center in Pasadena, Texas, as part of its long-term commitment to craft workforce development.

Through the center, Fluor will provide tuition-free, pre-employment training to individuals who want to enter high-demand careers in construction. The center offers entry-level courses in the electrical, instrumentation, millwright and pipefitting disciplines with advanced training offered in welding. Training is certified by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), providing students with portable, industry-recognized certifications and skills, which will enable them to apply for craft positions in industrial construction throughout the country.

“Since the 1960s, Fluor has invested in the future of the craft workforce, providing opportunities to current and future craft professionals,” said David Seaton, Fluor’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Fluor is now one of the country’s largest construction employers. We are pleased to aid in developing the next generation of skilled craft workers through our U.S. Gulf Coast craft training center. By expanding our pre-employment training to include multiple disciplines, we can better address the industry-wide demand for skilled craft workers.”

The new training center supplements Fluor’s ongoing investments in craft workforce development. Fluor currently provides no cost, after-hours training at many of its jobsites, providing workers with an opportunity to upgrade their skills.
