Training Season

New Programs that are changing the construction workforce

It’s training season! The time of year when apprentices and jouneyworkers have opportunities to learn new skills and capabilities at the Drexel J. Thrash Training Center. We ask you to encourage your laborers to utilize the available courses to increase their greater confidence, skills, knowledge, and efficiency. This training season, we are adding two new courses to the training list: Construction Math III (Pre-Algebra) and Work Zone Technician III. For training center questions, please reach out to
