At hth companies we believe in continued education throughout a person’s career.
We recognize that the environment we work in is not static but dynamic and our people must continue to evolve to meet customers’ needs. In order to hold true to hth companies’ vision of creating an environment where employees are encouraged to develop their full potential, we encourage personnel to take advantage of numerous training and development opportunities. hth recognizes that our approach might not be traditional in the construction service industry but we see that as an advantage.
hth companies has developed a skill block program focusing on practical hands on training and field verification. The program is administered in the field breaking up specific tasks within trades allowing for field supervision to verify knowledge of craftsman. Once required blocks are completed, the craftsman is eligible to demonstrate the learned skills on a controlled test demonstrating safety, knowledge, quality, and efficiency.
