WHAT CAN CONTRACTORS EXPECT?
JumpStart is a lot like a construction boot camp. RAMS provides a structured program taught by former tradesmen that gives dedicated participants a clear path to a rewarding career. Sure, the work is hard, and our teachers push our Jumpers to be the best they can be. But when they graduate, they have all the skills need to begin their path to a successful career.
“JumpStart has been a critical addition for our company. It’s helped us to better blend labor rates and train our crews for tomorrow.”
