More Capability for Local 150 Operator and Technician Training

Staff | September 28, 2010

Local 150's Apprenticeship and Skill Improvement Program is now headquartered in a new facility near Wilmington, Ill. The new facility, located on a 300-hundred-acre site about 50 miles southwest of Chicago, has many well-equipped classrooms, a complete soils lab, an auditorium that accommodates earthmoving machines on its stage, an indoor operating arena, and large shops for training welders and service technicians. In the facility's immense paving bay (right photo), students place mats of sand to gain paving skills.
