Local 4 Apprenticeship & Training Program Mission:

Is to produce conscientious, skilled journey members who are proficient in the areas of hoisting, excavation, and maintenance. This will be achieved by providing members with continuous learning opportunities at the forefront of their field.  Apprentices will have:

  • Related experience in the classroom
  • Access to present day equipment
  • Technologically advanced simulator training
  • Mentorship from veteran operators while working in the field 

With the application of these elements of preparation, the apprentices will become highly trained operating engineers who are ready for the demands of the profession, capable decision makers, and effective leaders on the job site.
