Klein Tools creates almost every type of tool used across the maintenance, construction and industrial trade professions. But for students about to embark on a trades training career path, Klein is crafting a celebration.

For National Signing Day 2022, Klein Tools is partnering with The Home Depot and The Home Builders Institute (HBI) to celebrate and support high school, college-level and post-secondary students entering the skilled trades industry. Participating students will sign a letter of intent to pursue a skilled career in the trades.

Klein and The Home Depot were live on location with these students on Thursday, April 21, at HBI-affiliated schools across the U.S.:

  • Lee County High School in Leesburg, Georgia
  • Treasure Island Job Corps Program in San Francisco, California
  • Joliet Job Corps Program in Joliet, Illinois
  • North Texas Job Corps Program in Mckinney, Texas

The Home Depot is committed to educating people in the skilled trades and helping them find careers. The Home Depot Foundation’s Path to Pro program offers free education, hands-on training and certifications for youth, military service members and underserved communities. Today, more than 15,000 participants have been introduced to the skilled trades and more than 5,000 have been certified.
