Delta Constructors and Calista Corporation finalized an agreement to expand development of the construction trades workforce.

Training Local Hires

Per the agreement, Delta and Calista will work together to achieve expanded employment opportunities for Alaska Native corporation shareholders throughout Alaska. The agreement streamlines communication and aligns the two organizations to better inform, encourage, and support the delivery of skill-building opportunities.

Especially in rural communities, there are limited opportunities to participate in internships, apprenticeship programs, and trade schools. Delta and Calista have long been committed supporters of skill development through those avenues. This partnership expands Delta’s reach and broadens the employment opportunities it can provide to Alaska Native corporation shareholders.

“This partnership with Calista strengthens Delta’s commitment to lead the opportunity to train and develop much needed skilled trades across Alaska Native communities, preparing Alaskans for good paying jobs in Alaska’s oil fields and energy developments of the future,” says Delta CEO Ed Gohr.
