CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. — Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, has announced a partnership with the National Hispanic Construction Association (NHCA) to make more than 200 publications for the professional building trades readily available to NHCA members.

Through this new partnership, the NHCA will now be able to offer a wide range of educational materials to its nearly 4,000 member companies. Delmar produces a comprehensive range of training resources for all levels of professional experience, including construction managers, construction workers, engineers, architects, contractors, students, and instructors. Materials, including some in Spanish, will be made available to NHCA members in the areas of construction estimating, materials estimating, building, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, building codes, blueprint reading, crafting professional letters, accessing forms, and OSHA compliance, among others.

“We are excited to begin working with Delmar, as they are a highly-respected source of educational and training materials for the construction industry,” said Peter Fontanes, chairman, NHCA. “As a company, they share many of the same goals as our organization, so we will work together in helping Hispanic tradesmen move forward and succeed by providing easy-to-access materials that will help prepare them to face today’s working economy.”

“Spanish-speaking professionals represent a 30 percent increase in the U.S. labor force and account for more than 15 percent of the total construction industry. As one of the fastest growing groups in the workforce, Hispanic construction professionals need access to educational resources in English and Spanish for training and professional development in the way that best fits their learning style,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, technology professional business unit, Delmar. “Through this new partnership with NHCA, and with our large catalog of both English and Spanish-language products, we will continue to support Hispanic construction professionals by providing them with the resources necessary to advance and grow in their prospective trades.”
