The mission of the Field Ironworkers Apprenticeship and Journeyman Retraining Program is to ensure that our union ironworkers have the skills, knowledge and training necessary to be safe on the jobsite; competitive in the workplace; and satisfied in their careers. We accomplish that mission by providing training and training materials, trained and experienced instructors and leadership in order to uphold union values and principles of service and professionalism.
The road to becoming a Journeyman Ironworker is through Apprenticeship Training. The Ironworkers Apprenticeship Program is a well organized and supervised method of training people, with little or no knowledge of the craft, to become Journeymen Ironworkers qualified in all segments of the Trade.
