Here are some great videos that will provide you with inspiration to showcase the construction training programs in your area. As you can see, they don’t have to be long or scripted and can be easily and inexpensively produced. Many high schools have broadcast journalism classes or the equivalent that would be willing to produce these videos as student projects. Student and CTE professionals testimonials are key!
