      We are working with Kelly Group, an online education resource, and have compiled several bundles of online training courses. We will cover the cost of taking these courses for our members. It is our goal to supply our membership with continued opportunities to make themselves more valuable to their contractors and our local halls. After each member is enrolled, they have 1 year to complete the courses in each bundle. That allows each individual to take the courses at their own pace and in the time frame that fits their family’s schedules. Along with skilled topics like Pipe and Concrete, we also have online OSHA available. There are stand-alone online courses for OSHA 10 in English and Spanish, OSHA 10 Road Construction, OHSA 30 in English, or we also have the OSHA 30 bundle that includes not only the basic 10 and 30 courses but also more detailed courses. Laborer journeypersons that are interested in enrolling should contact their local halls and have a training referral sent to the training fund. The comprehensive course bundles include:
