Brothers and Sisters,
The weather is improving and new construction projects are breaking ground throughout our Council. Make sure you are ready to take advantage of all the opportunities available by updating your skill set and certifications to meet the demand.
Journeyman upgrade classes are the key to increasing your opportunities to go to work. At any one of our seven training centers located throughout our region, you can receive up-to- the-minute skills training and the latest certifications in cutting edge technology.
Your skills provide our signatory contractors with a significant edge at the bidding table because more training increases productivity and improves safety conditions on the jobsite. This advantage is not just a benefit for our signatory contractors. Training helps our members face the challenges in a competitive market place so multiple certifications greatly increase your opportunities for work.
We work with our industry partners to find out how our training centers can best address their workforce needs. In the year ahead, there will be demand for members with OSHA 30, scaffolding, and rigging certifications. Please visit our Training Page to find the NRCC training center near you and sign up for journeyman upgrade classes or renew your certifications. http://www.northeastcarpenters.org/training_centers
Once you’ve received your updated certifications, don’t forget to submit an updated skills questionnaire so we can match your skills to the right job.
Michael Capelli, Executive Secretary-Treasurer
