Covington is hosting two free information sessions next week, kicking off its Academy for Heritage Trades. The sessions will teach participants about the academy’s fall 2023 course and workshop schedule.
Heritage trades include skills like carpentry, masonry, stained glass and window restoration.
Session 1 takes place on Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Session 2 is on Saturday, Aug. 19, from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Both sessions will be held at the Enzweiler Building Institute’s Covington Campus at 3923 Winston Ave. in Latonia.
“We are so excited to offer our first full semester of course offerings,” Covington Historic Preservation Officer Kaitlin Bryan said. “We had a lot of bumps along the way, but we are ready to set our students up for success.”
Each session will answer questions on curriculum, applying, schedule, agenda, and expectations.
Session attendees will:
- Hear details about broader classes forming for the Covington Academy of Heritage Trades.
- Learn about the introductory weekends.
- Learn about the program’s hands-on fieldwork.
- Find out about available scholarships and opportunities to meet employers.
Covington hired the Building Industry Association of Northern Kentucky to oversee the new school. Hands-on classroom instruction occurs at the former Colonial Inn motel owned by the City of Covington at 1515 Madison Ave.
