NUCA supports our chapters, organizations and public events that promote industry career opportunities, shares workforce recruitment and development programs in the broader industry. We are working to provide industry-specific vocational scholarships, and seek to create informational “Career Path Guides” for our industry.

We are also working to provide the tools and resources for members to attract and develop new entrants to the industry by improving the image of the industry and providing educational opportunities. Additionally, NUCA will work with public and private schools (K through 12), community colleges, apprenticeship programs, and continuing adult education programs to develop and distribute utility construction and excavation curriculum. Spreading the word by attending scholastic and industry events, meetings, and trade shows are also effective ways to spread the word about industry career opportunities.

We hope to continue to provide important information and resources to assist our members and the industry on building a strong workforce!
