UBC TRAINING PROGRAMS
The Carpenters International Training Center (ITC) is a thriving monument to the Brotherhood’s commitment to skills and productivity, and to building strength as a union and an industry partner.
Above all, the ITC is where we develop and train local trainers who deliver the most current craft-skills instruction to members at more than 200 centers around North America. The ITC supports the creation of new courses that meet contractors’ evolving needs, and it is home to ongoing refinements in core courses such as interior systems; scaffolding; concrete formwork; commercial doors and hardware; gas- and steam-turbine installation and maintenance; and many others.
The center also hosts direct member training in power-generation and other special crafts, as well as industry conferences and an array of development programs that teach our members leadership, productivity, project management, communication, and other skills.
The Carpenters International Training Center is keeping union carpenters and our signatories competitive–whatever the future may bring.
The UBC’s Department of Education and Training (DET) aligns education, leadership, and development of members and union staff with the Brotherhood’s strategic priorities of growth, skill and professionalism, and organizational effectiveness.
