On October 4 & 5, 2018, GBCA Director of Safety Services, Frank Durso, taught the OSHA 10 training course to participants of the PennAssist Program. The course was held at the PennFIRST offices.

The goal of the PennAssist Program is to bridge the gap for Philadelphia residents who want to enter into a skilled trade Apprenticeship. During the 12 month program, PennAssist participants will complete Program Orientation, be assigned worksite placement in their respective trade with a union subcontractor, and attend exam prep classes in preparation to take their respective Apprentice exams.

GBCA is a proud sponsor of the PennAssist Program, and we welcome this year’s participants to our industry!
