Jobs Funnel

Gain specific work competencies and trade-related certifications.

The Jobs Funnel is a pre-employment preparation and job training “stepping stone” for Connecticut residents who are seeking employment in construction and construction-related trades. The name “Jobs Funnel,” is taken from a process individuals go through – funneling into the system to gain specific work competencies and trade-related certifications. They then funnel out to build self-sustaining and rewarding careers.

In Capital Workforce Partners’ region, there is a Jobs Funnel office in Hartford and New Britain that serves residents from all of North Central Connecticut.
