In 2017, The Enzweiler Building Institute was awarded a grant through the Kentucky Work Ready Skills Initiative, providing much needed funds to add 6,300 square feet of training labs and campus renovations to its Boone County Campus. Campbell County locations will be opening for the 2020-2021 school year.

Dr. Vicki Berling, Director of Professional Development at Enzweiler Building Institute, said there are many exciting changes planned for the 2019-20 school year.

“We will be finishing the renovation of our existing classrooms to update our technology, facilities and lab capabilities for our electric, HVAC, plumbing and facilities maintenance programs. Then we will turn our attention to building a 6,300 square foot addition where we will house our carpentry, welding, masonry and diesel mechanics for construction programs. We will truly offer a state-of-the art learning environment, taught by our seasoned professionals who combined bring well over 100 years of experience in the skilled building trades to our schoo.”

Interested students should attend an open house to learn more about the programs offered. The open houses will be held on July 25th and August 8th at 6 p.m. Both will be held at the Enzweiler Building Institute at 2751 Circleport Drive, Erlanger, KY 41018.
