Contractors College comes to Houma

from the Houma Courier:

An intensive two-day training session will prepare interested contractors for the state's licensing exam.

The instructional training program is open to entrepreneurs interested in starting a construction company or existing unlicensed contractors looking to expand current operations. It will teach them how to improve their businesses' credit, capital, capacity and credibility, all of which are major considerations for banks, insurance and surety companies.

The Terrebonne Economic Development Authority will host the contractor's college through a grant provided by the state's Innovation Loan and Technical Assistance Program, as well as sponsorship from the South Central Planning and Development Commission and Options for Independence.

The training will be held 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on March 10 and from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on March 11 at the South Central Planning and Development Commission, 5058 West Main St., Houma.

Participants are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, go to the authority's office at 319 Roussell St., Houma, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please contact Amanda at or call 873-6890.
