Helping Students Reach New Heights
AACC 21st Century Center
Areas of Texas and the Gulf Coast region face a unique workforce challenge: a shortage of industrial scaffold builders.
In response, Texas Southmost College (TSC) created the Industrial Scaffolding Committee Basic Access program-an 80-hour, fast-track program that prepares students for the Industrial Scaffolding Committee certification.
Students in the program learn to identify, inspect, erect, dismantle, rack, and stack the most common industrial scaffolding systems. And those who pass the certification test have an excellent chance at gaining entry into the industry at an average salary of $15 per hour.
