Active Duty Career Training in National Parks

CPI Foundation (CPI) provides 12-week career training programs for transitioning active-duty service members from all branches of the military. CPI's in-depth program includes classroom and hands-on experience, helping these soon-to-be-veterans prepare for trades & management careers in the civilian concrete & construction industry. 

In addition to benefiting the participants, CPI program outcomes include the completion of construction, repair, maintenance, & safety/access projects in national parks & other public lands, along with increasing the workforce of the greater infrastructure industry.

CPI training is provided free-of-charge to service members, with housing and local transportation included at no charge. CPI is a registered 501(c)3 organization and does not receive government funding for providing career-training services.

Your generous donation of any amount will help CPI continue to provide and expand the training & placement services our deserving men and women in uniform need to successfully transition to civilian careers, along with helping restore & maintain our country's national parks. 

CPI Partnerships:
     Dept of Defense as an authorized SkillBridge/CSP career-training program
     Dept of the Interior/National Park Service as a Park Partner
     Industry companies and associations as a source of quality job applicants 

CPI's program ultimately benefits the US and all its taxpayers by combining the strengths and needs of three national concerns: our military veterans, our infrastructure, and our national parks.
