Welcome to A Cut Above the Rest Training Facility
We’re a non profit organization developed to provide heavy equipment, commercial lawn equipment training to ex-felons and eventually at risk youth. We will provide classroom and hands-on training within the heavy equipment field to ex-felons re-entering society after incarceration.
CARTF’s mission is to provide classroom and hands-on training to ex-felons entering society after incarceration within the commercial lawn care and heavy construction equipment fields. They will be taught a multitude of job skills and life skills that will allow the ex-felons to be self sufficient and facilitate their ability to become productive members of society.

"This organization’s approach is innovative in that it not only uses an application process to select individuals who show a commitment to changing their lives, it also seeks to place these individuals with companies who are receptive to hiring ex-offenders and payingthem fair wages."− Governor Robert Bentley, State of Alabama
"A Cut Above the Rest Training Facility will certainly impact the recidivism rate in the State of Alabama in a positive manner. The facility will provide needed job skills, workforce training and job placement assistance to formerly incarcerated state prisoners."− Kim Thomas, Commissioner State of Alabama Department of Corrections
