Extollo Training & Construction SA

Extollo Training & Construction SA

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.

Organization Mission

The construction industry can and should be a very strong economic stimulus to any economy but Haiti’s construction industry is in total disrepair. Haitians are not being properly trained to build to earthquake and hurricane standards. To tackle this seemingly insurmountable task, you need an organization and people who come from a successful and proven construction industry as well as people who can help develop men and women of character.

Extollo Training & Construction SA has partnered with 501c3 Extollo International out of Pleasanton, CA to take on this challenge. 

Extollo’s Founder and its Director of Training are both active California General Contractors, each having built millions of square feet of commercial structures in compliance with some of the strictest building standards in the world, from residential homes, food packing plants, hi-tech manufacturing facilities in the Silicon Valley and everything in between. Many of our volunteers are Journeymen Craftsmen or hold Contractor Licenses. Bringing this level of experience into the hands-on operation of our training programs and also stressing the importance of integrity, responsibility and other essential character traits, is the difference Extollo can provide.

Our dream is to finish building the Training Center and then be a fully operational, government recognized Vocational Training School and also facilitate Construction contracts to local businesses and organiations with our graduates.
