The Faculty

Many of our instructors attended and graduated from our program at one time or another. Others have come from other Unions from around the country. They all bring many years of experience and are committed to educating our apprentices to the fullest.

All 2nd to 5th Year classes are taught from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm two nights per week, Monday to Thursday. The first year apprentices attend school one day per week and work 32 hours per week.

Below is the list of teachers and classes given for the five year apprenticeship program:
