Our members recognize that our ability to exceed our custome's expectations hinges on the education and training of our workforce. Local Union #174 Training is completely self-funded. Our members contribute nearly $800,000 annually to our training fund. We have a Department of Labor certified five year apprenticeship program.  Each Local Union #174 apprentice receives in depth on the job training coupled with a paid apprenticeship class day once every other week.  Once an apprentice graduates and becomes a journeyman the training doesn't stop.  Continuing education and journeyman training allows our member to stay ahead of the ever advancing technology in our industry. Our journeymen commit to more than 10,000 hours annually in upgrade training. We believe safety is the single most important factor on construction sites today. That is why all Local #174 members carry the OSHA 10 Hour Safety Certification. When our members show up on the job you can expect a trained, certified, safe and productive workforce.
