The Extollo Training Center is a vocational school that teaches construction in 6 core trades including: masonry, concrete and forms, electrical, plumbing, carpentry and welding. Students learn construction fundamentals in the classroom and then apply what they’ve learned during hands-on training. They learn earthquake-and- hurricane resistant building methods to international standards, preparing them for jobs in Haiti.
Classes are taught in Haitian Creole with a custom curriculum, addressing Haiti’s specific construction needs. To graduate and become certified, students must pass written and practical tests.
The five-acre campus, located in Bercy, Haiti, will be developed in phases to accommodate immediate training demands and grow for future needs.
