The Labor Technical College has a new class training notification system. We have eliminated the mailing of notices of class scheduling and replacing it with a system of email, text and phone notification of your class schedule. We have phased out all mail correspondence for the scheduling of classes since September of 2012.
The Labor Technical College has established a College Program for apprentices and journey-level workers interested in returning to school to earn a 2-year or 4-year degree. Please click on the ‘College Program’ link below for more information.
The Labor Technical College is the training center for the New York City District Council of Carpenters. It conducts apprenticeship training for over 1,700 registered apprentices in six New York State Department of Labor approved apprenticeship programs.
The New York City District Council of Carpenters represents:
The apprenticeship programs are four-year programs, with the exception of Cabinet maker, which is a five-year program. Apprentices are scheduled for daytime training one week approximately every eleven weeks, from September through June of each year of their apprenticeship for a total of four weeks per year (144 hours per year of related training).
Apprentices must also work on construction job sites for signatory contractors for a minimum of 1,300 hours per year as part of their on-the-job training requirement.
In addition to apprentice training, the Labor Technical College offers skill advancement training for mechanics through the journey level training schedule.
Individuals interested in receiving a Journey Level Skills Advancement Program schedule can call the school and a copy will be mailed to your residence. Additional copies may be picked up at the Labor Technical College office located on the 2nd floor during school hours.
Journey level courses are offered on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Individuals may register for no more than two courses at a time.
