About the Program
Providing Knowledge & Resources to Reach Your Goals
C-TEC’s role provides funding for industry speakers, relationship building with industry representatives, and grants for employee training. This program is funded by Industry Funds and managed through the SCCA Construction University.
Training for company employees happens on almost an annual basis, and we are aware this could be a costly expense to your company. C-TEC will help facilitate industry training & education to our members with partial grants and reimbursement, as well with monthly classes taught by industry professionals.Learn More
