Local 18 is dedicated to providing industry with the most skilled and best prepared apprentices and journeypersons possible. We do this through selective enrollment, peer assistance and flexible and extensive training options.
Listed beside are the training courses provided by Local 18 to our members. Courses are primarily scheduled based on member demand and enrollment. If you are interested in any of the courses listed, you must login to this website and add your name to the expressions of interest list by clicking on the I'm Interested. Notify Me When This Course is Offered button. Once a course has enough interested members, the training facilitator will schedule the sessions and contact members directly for attendance registration. Unfortunately, no walk-ins are accepted for courses, so please make sure to call and register in advance.
*All training hours count towards your required apprenticeship hours.
Reminders to Local 18 membership participating in Training Courses:
- Full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is required to be allowed to participate in classes by all participants, including: long pants, long or short sleeve shirts and proper foot wear (no shorts, tank top style shirts or sandels are allowed for any reason). You are actively participating in training and should be dressed to do so when you arrive.
- Participants arriving late to classes will not be allowed in past a 10 minute grace period. Please be courteous of all the participants and instructors and their time and arrive prior to the start time of the course.
- We require no less than 24 hours of advanced notice to cancel your spot in a registered training course. Please contact the office well in advance if you know you can no longer attend a course you have committed to so we can open up the spot to another interested member.
- Members who “No-Show” or last minute cancellations (less than 24 hours notice before course start) will now be charged a $50.00 fee to re-register for the course. Please be courteous of the instructors running the course, the organizers, as well as other members who would have liked to have taken the course but couldn’t because it was full, and commit to showing up to participate in these valuable training courses. We have discouraging “no-show” counts, and this does not benefit anyone.
Remember: the more interest and active participation that we have in running courses the more can be organized to run for you our membership!
Thank you in advance, Local 18
