'Real-world' training facilities, equipment and seasoned instructors prepare Local 825 Operating Engineers to deliver skill, safety and experience to today's contractors.
State-of-the-art equipment and seasoned instructors prepare our members, apprentices and journey-level workers for the real world of heavy equipment and how to use it on the job.
With a total area of nearly 60 acres in New Jersey and New York and more than 90 pieces of equipment, we provide three-year apprenticeship courses for operators, mechanics and field engineers. We provide a wide variety of courses to allow members to upgrade their skills on the newest state-of-the-art heavy equipment, simulators and instrumentation.
Current equipment includes a new milling machine to complete a rigorous asphalt-paving curriculum and seven side booms for pipeline training. There's even a new Liebherr tower crane available to complement the already highly acclaimed training program for CCO certification and the New Jersey State crane license.
With everything from heavy equipment operator training, emergency response training, hazardous waste operations, and OSHA training, to full-time, on-location instructors, Local 825's training sites ensure that Local 825 members are the safest, most highly skilled and experienced operators on any worksite.
