Free OSHA, HAZMAT, and HAZWOPER Certification Classes for Maui Residents via the Hawaiian Trades Academy - Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement

The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement is launching a comprehensive workforce development program to provide Maui residents with OSHA construction, HAZMAT, and HAZWOPER certifications.

This program seeks to equip local Maui residents with the necessary skills, training, and certifications that are necessary to actively participate in recovery efforts and good paying jobs, ensuring safety, efficiency, and long-term community resilience. Future additional training in the construction and transportation fields will also be made available. Additional classes, including Commercial Drivers Licensing (CDL), will soon be announced.

Classes will begin September 15, 2023 and are free for all Maui residents. Class schedules and times TBA.

If you are interested in these classes, please sign up using the Work Training Form here to help us identify the community's immediate workforce needs and interest.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a Work Training Sign-Up Form to sign up for upcoming classes and to receive announcements about future programs. A formal application will be opened for enrollment at a later time. Mahalo.

In response to community concerns about keeping jobs in Hawai‘i for local businesses and workers, the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement has pivoted its Hawaiian Trades Academy to focus on workforce development with the launch of its Maui Workforce Development Program.
