We ensure skill, safety & experience

There is no margin for error in today’s fast-paced world of construction. Operating Engineers must be fully trained and experienced on real equipment in real world settings before they step foot on a job.

Real-world training

Our members are trained in real-world facilities on the latest models of equipment, including those with the newest technology and GPS systems. We offer comprehensive programs so apprentices, mechanics, field engineers, journeymen and women and members can perfect their skills, cross train to learn new ones, and stay ahead of changes in equipment and technology.

Full-time instructors provide everything from heavy equipment operator training, training in emergency response, hazardous waste operations and OSHA requirements to keep contractors supplied year-round with safe, skilled, and efficient operators.

State-of-the-art training centers, equipment and technology
