Prism Electric welcomes our new Director of Training, Laura Collins, a training professional for 20 years and in the construction industry for more than a decade. Laura has worked for large corporations like the Texas Workforce Commission, McCarthy Building Companies, and smaller independent contractors to help them identify training and certification needs for their tradesmen.

Laura says “After taking a venture outside the construction industry and into the software development world, I realized that I missed seeing job sites full of hard-working folks and couldn’t wait to get back to the construction industry.” As Laura gets acclimated to her new role, she will attend and support the existing training efforts, determine new training needs to create specific programs, and manage the Apprentice Program. Our objective is to advance the skills of our employees and enhance our business performance of the trade.

Laura has her master’s degree from the University of North Texas. Before Laura was in grade school, she attended Women in Construction meetings with her mother, one of the founding members and two-time president of the Austin Chapter. We are excited to have Laura on board, sharing her expertise and motivation to promote efficiency by developing personnel skills.
