Mobile Training Unit Availability

In order to make training more convenient for members of the Laborers’ Union and its signatory contractors in Northern California, the Terence J. O’Sullivan Laborers’ Training Center is now taking reservations for its Mobile Training Unit.

The state-of-the-art portable classroom can be brought to Local Union offices, construction sites or anywhere else that training for Construction Craft Laborers is needed. Most training classes offered through the Mobile Training Unit are one-day (8-hour) classes. The Laborers’ Training Center provides the instructor(s), course materials and equipment. Certificates for trainees who successfully complete a class are generally mailed directly to the trainee within one week.

Contact Ollie Hurd at the Laborers’ Training Center in San Ramon for the current list of classes and dates when the Mobile Training Unit is available. He can be reached at (925) 828-2513, or via e-mail at: ohurd@norcalaborers.org

IMPORTANT REMINDER!

All trainees/apprentices are expected to be on time for all courses and to be suitably attired with work clothing and work boots. NO shorts, tank tops, or tennis shoes will be allowed in class or in the dining area. NO head gear will be allowed in the dining room. Registration for all courses is from 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM the first day of class. After the first day, classes will begin at 6:30 AM. Classes end at 3:00 PM. Those arriving late or without proper attire will NOT be accepted.
