Our Instructors are selected on the basis of professional, on-the-job experience and demonstrated teaching skills. Their on-the-job experience averages twenty years; none of our instructors have worked professionally for less than ten years. Their teaching backgrounds are also formidable: classroom training experience averages seven years. And each instructor is required every year to attend one week of instruction at United Association Training Centers to update his teaching skills relative to technological advances in the industry. These individuals are highly skilled in motivating their students. In addition, Instructors may take additional training at regional training centers during the year to meet specific needs.

Job Placement and Related Training

Apprentices are assigned to work full time for a signatory contractor. In addition to the on the job training they receive, apprentices must attend 216 hours of related classroom training each year.

By the time an individual has successfully completed the five year training program, he or she is qualified to meet any challenge in the field.

At Local Union 112 we know that these individuals are not only skilled workers but valuable ambassadors as well. Our commitment to training and excellence supports our claim that we are the best.
