JoB Training Course
May 8-23, 2019 from 9 am to 5 pm
in Menlo Park
The Office of Sustainability is offering free
deconstruction trainings from The ReUse Institute,
the training division of The ReUse People of America,
which has trained over 50 contractors and 500
deconstruction workers throughout the country.
Deconstruction, also referred to as salvage, is a cost-
effective and environmentally responsible alternative to
conventional building demolition. Deconstruction is the
systematic disassembly of a building in order to recover
the maximum economic and environmental value of
materials through reuse and recycling.
Workers who graduate from the program will receive
certificates and will be eligible to be listed in the
company’s online database of available deconstruction
The training will be a 12-day course ranging from
classroom instruction to field training, including
actually deconstructing a house.
Women, veterans, ex-offenders and underserved
populations are encouraged to apply.
