Two Cement Mason completers learned on Thursday, September 24th, that they’ve been hired as cement mason apprentices at $35.40/hour! Victoria Johnson-Booker and Elijah Johnson will join Ishmael Harakh, who completed in August, at Local 780 in Whitestone, NY, on October 12th. Two Overhead Line completers of our Smart Grid Advanced Training program were hired on Friday, September 25th, by Long Island Rail Road. Deandre Doy and Jason Billington-Dwinnell will be earning $26.73/hour as Apprentice Lineman/Cable Splicers! Fellow student Elber Fonseca will soon join them once he receives his expected offer letter, bringing the total number hires by L.I.R.R. to an even ten. Once again, our students out-performed other candidates on the climbing skills test in NYC.
