Oklahoma College of Construction

On October 12 of this year, The Oklahoma College of Construction (OCC) will be hosting an open house of their brand new classroom, office, and field site facilities in Oklahoma City. OCC's recent growth has been the driving force behind the relocation to the new, expanded facility.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn who the OCC is and what it does for its students and the construction industry that hires its graduates. Instructors will be talking about the different training levels and programs available at the OCC. They will also provide an overview of the construction education that the OCC offers. The field site will be open for tours and visitors will be able to see and learn first hand about different kinds of heavy equipment including: backhoes, skid steers, bulldozers, motor graders, and excavators. The OCC Industry Relations Director, Wade Vackulick, will also be available to meet with contractors, vendors, and suppliers in order to talk more in detail about OCC construction industry services.

Industry contractors, vendors, suppliers, and state agency workers are expected to attend. In addition to potential students, staff members from various branches of The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) are expected to attend as well. The public is invited and cameras are encouraged.

With regards to the grand opening, OCC Campus President, Jerry McGinnis, said "The open house will really give everyone a chance to see who we are and learn what our mission is-to provide heavy equipment, crane, and construction equipment training that will empower individuals to launch a life changing career within the construction industry."

The Oklahoma College of Construction was started in August of 2005. It is one of five member schools of The National Association of Heavy Equipment Training Schools (NAHETS). In its short lifetime, the OCC developed the first CCO crane training program in the NAHETS association, and is affiliated with four state chapters of the AGC, The Specialized Carriers and Riggers Association (SCRA), the OK Municipal Contractors Association, and various state agencies. The OCC provides heavy equipment training, education, and certification, as well as job placement assistance, for heavy equipment operators across the country.
