Shimmick University

Shimmick has a comprehensive, in-house training program for our new and future leaders, which sets them up to effectively manage projects and people. Taught by both our own and outside leaders, the 3-day course includes a leading personality assessment, evaluating work, management, and communication style; multiple sessions on the nuts and bolts of running a successful project; training on the legal ins and outs related to the field; and information geared towards continuously improving the soft skills associated with managing a team.

Mentoring Program

Through Shimmick's mentoring program you will gain invaluable insight and direction to help you further your career from experienced Shimmick employees. Typically within 5 years, Shimmick Project Engineers are estimating, building and managing projects. The majority of our Project Managers have their Professional Engineering Licenses, and all new Engineers are encouraged to develop knowledge and experience and attain their PE License.

“SCCI hires the best of the best, who then turn around and train their co-workers to be even better. There’s nothing better than a training course taught by a colleague that you respect who is an expert. The most valuable part of each class is that examples from SCCI jobs are used to illustrate the subject. Many are from jobs that I have seen or even worked on. Every time I attend a training course, I am always amazed at the contribution that each of my colleagues makes to the course."
