One of HBI's newest initiatives in response to the severe skilled labor shortage is the opening of several trades training academies across the nation. The Academies represent a new learning environment that delivers our industry-recognized skills training to a new generation of home builders. HBI is working closely with industry partners such as The BuildStrong Foundation, The Home Depot Foundation, and The Home Builders Association of Central Arizona to offer tuition-free construction trades training to anyone 18 years of age or older. The academies, now open in Orlando, Denver, New Orleans, and Houston, demonstrate an innovative approach to filling the skills gap. Students receive hands-on training that takes them from beginners with little-to-no building experience to tradespeople who are sought after by employers. Students receive mentorship throughout their training and job placement support upon graduating from the program.
