On Tuesday, the Franklin County Career and Technical Center welcomed its newest addition to the facility with a ribbon cutting of the Kentucky Association of Master Contractors Foundation‘s School of Building Mechanical Sciences. With the uptick in the economy, more and more homes are being built and there is a shortage of qualified contractors. Franklin County’s answer to the issue is to engage the experts in the community in those fields, and offer one year classes through the career and tech center where those interested can become a master contractor in as little as a year. Those participants will be apprentices under many established and reputable companies within the county. The first two of several classes to be offered through FCCTC is an HVAC as well as a plumbing class.

The mission of the KAMA Foundation is to achieve excellence in the plumbing and HVAC industry by providing educational assistance, assisting and promoting secondary and post-secondary programs, developing workforce programs, providing management and technical training to advance the growth and career success of those employed in the plumbing and HVACR industry.

The KAMC Foundation School of Building Mechanical Sciences was founded to provide quality and comprehensive education and training in the Plumbing and HVAC trades. Because of the hectic pace of construction as a whole has eliminated proper on-the-job training, the need for quality training in the skilled-trades is greater than ever before.

The ribbon cutting was attended by the Executive Director of the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce, Carmen Inamn; KY State Rep. Derrick Graham; KY State Treasurer Allison Ball; the Principal of Franklin County Career and Technical Center, James Hardin; as well as KAMC Foundation President and owner of Senninger Plumbing, Mark Senninger. Several Chamber members, KAMC and BMS staff were also in attendance. A tour of the classroom was given after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
