The UBC is aiming to get more and more union carpenters out to its Carpenters International Training Center in Las Vegas, and all it needs is more applicants.


300 Hitters

Our 300 Hitters program was developed by the UBC to give our journeymen a broader understanding of our union, the construction industry and our membership’s role in shaping the future in the years ahead. This program is a once in a lifetime opportunity for members to tour our state-of-the-art International Training Center (ITC), meet other carpenters from all over the country, and most importantly, learn valuable skills they need to help build a stronger union.

Collaborative Leadership: Building Jobsite Leaders

This three-day program is designed to give jobsite supervisors the tools necessary to improve the overall jobsite, taking it from good to great.  Today’s leaders need an expanded repertoire of skills and a new mindset to succeed in the increasingly fast-paced, chaotic, and highly competitive industry. This calls for more collaborative-based leadership, and the creation of a partnership culture – one that can harness the knowledge and expertise of all stakeholders. This allows leaders to leverage everyone’s best, and better compete.

Superintendent Career Training: Plan for the Future

The concept of the Superintendent Career Training (SCT) program is to closely integrate both the technical aspects of construction job site management and the personal/career development needs of the individual trainee. The Carpenters International Training Fund program utilizes a unique combination of classroom instruction, company-sponsored mentoring and on-the-job training to deliver skill training customized to the individual needs of the sponsoring contractor and the Superintendent/General Foreman trainee.

Delivered in four individual programs at the UBC’s International Training Center, the structured, concentrated learning components are integrated with mentor sessions and on-the-job learning throughout the 18-month program.

For more info on superintendent training, you can download the brochure, or check both the UBC Website and the DC Website for info about the program and it’s timeline.  You can also contact the UBC at 702-938-1111 ext. 5.
