Our work is slow this Spring. There are jobs on the road but alot of them require a TWIC card for access. Here is a link to apply online and also a link for TWIC signup locations. The cost for the application is $125.25. If you have any questions about how the TWIC application process works, go to the TWIC website for answers. Along with the TWIC card a lot of the work on the road also requires a MOST OSHA 5 Hr refresher within the last year or some other MOST OSHA class such as the 10 hour or 30 hour. These classes can be taken online. Sign up with Paul at the training center to get access to the online MOST classes.
