JOURNEYMAN PROGRAM

ATTENTION MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING

The Journeyman Upgrade Classes (JUG) are designed to teach or enhance specific skills such as door hardware installation, hardwood floor installation and repair, welding, print reading and site layout with the Total Station. Many JUG classes lead to much sought after industry certifications including OSHA 10/30, First Aid/CPR, Rigging, Scaffold, Solid Surface and Aerial Lift.

NOTE: To take a scaffold erector class you must first complete Fall Protection Class.

By continuously increasing their knowledge and skills, journeyman and apprentices are better prepared to complete jobs with quality and efficiency, leading to greater productivity on the job. Participation in one or all of these classes will give you a chance to advance your career, broaden your horizons and help you to learn and develop new techniques.

CLASSES 2018

Contractors will be requiring some certifications minimum for upcoming work in scaffold, concrete, and interior jobs. Do your part.
