To address the need for training in the construction trades industry, ENMU-hosted conversations with the Mescalero Housing authority and Lincoln County Homebuilders. Currently, ENMU-Ruidoso is working with Mescalero Apache Schools to complete an MOU to deliver courses at their high school facility. The course and certificate program will teach skills that a worker needs pre-hire (pre-apprenticeship) to be qualified for an apprenticeship, or an entry level position.
