Women interested in the trades should check out the Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc, fall class. It’s a free seven-week training – two-thirds of last years’ graduates now have jobs in the trades (as carpenters, foresters, green construction technicians, boilermakers, and much more). The OTI office and classroom is just up the street on Alberta (btwn 17th and 18th). Classes are three days a week. Registration is open right now, and the fall class starts on October 13th. Contact Dawn Jones at 503-335-8200 x31 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out the site at www.tradeswomen.net for more details.
