New Class Registration System

Comment

New Class Registration System

We're proud to introduce our new Class Registration System.  This system will allow our apprentices to have more flexibility when registering apprenticeship classes around their work schedules.

Carpenter Apprentices are encouraged to attend an informational meeting  to discuss how to set up their training account online, register for classes, check their training agenda, and make changes to their schedule when needed.

A meeting will be held at 6:00 PM in the Union Hall on Wednesday, December 16th for 1st and 3rd Year Apprentices. A second meeting will be held  at 6:00 PM in the Union Hall on Thursday, December 17th for 2nd  and 4th  Year Apprentices.

While we ask that you come with your assigned group, you may attend the other meeting if you are unavailable the night you are assigned.

Light refreshments will be provided 30 minutes prior to the start of the meeting.

We are still in the process of piloting this new system, so for the time being it will only be available for Carpenter Apprentices registered with the Greater  New Orleans Training Center.

We anticipate implementing schedules for Baton Rouge Carpenter Apprentices, Millwright Apprentices, and for Journeymen Upgrade courses by the end of the first quarter of 2016.

Pre-Apprenticeship Scaffold Training

Our pre-apprenticeship is more than just weeks of safety, regulations, math, and life skills. Our pre-apprentices get hands-on, practical training that is designed to assess their mechanical inclination while letting them test out the trades before committing to apprenticeship.

Check out the video below to see them in action, and stay tuned for more video updates in the near future!

Our pre-apprentices have recently learning how to build scaffolds. Watch their progress in this short video.

Grand Opening

Grand Opening

Today marked the grand opening of the new Central South Carpenters New Orleans Offices and Training Center located at 2850 Massachusetts Ave. in Metairie, Louisiana.  We were joined by Union officials, state and local officials, and educators from the surrounding parishes to help open this new facility.

This training facility has been in the making for over a decade.  It represents a $12.5 million investment we have made in our members, and the commitment to excellence in safety and training we have made to our signatory contractors.
