CFCC and City of Wilmington Partner to Offer Lead-Based Safety Training Courses
Wilmington, NC — Cape Fear Community College, in collaboration with the City of Wilmington Community Development division, is pleased to announce and offer a variety of lead-based paint safety training courses for local contractors and volunteers.
The primary goal of these training programs is to increase employment opportunities for individuals and grow the labor force of local contractors qualified as a certified renovator and/or a certified renovation firm that can perform renovation, repair, and painting projects on behalf of the City for homes where lead-based paint hazards are present.
This training is made possible by a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control grant to the City of Wilmington’s Lead Hazard Reduction / Healthy Homes Program.
“We’re excited to partner with the City of Wilmington to provide training that will not only help make our community a safer place but will also create more jobs and grow the existing workforce,” said Erica Talbert, CFCC Associate Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development.
“This partnership represents what is possible and can be achieved when there is a genuine desire to provide economic opportunities and safe affordable housing for the residents of Wilmington,” said Suzanne Rogers, City of Wilmington Community Development and Housing Planner.
Contractors and volunteers interested in this training program should contact Marta Maietta, CFCC training coordinator at 910-362-7164 or email@example.com . For more information or to register for the training, visit https://cfcc.edu/lead-safety-training .
