Training & Education NTF

Training & Education NTF Wraps Another Successsful Training Year, Looks Ahead Local Training Expands to Meet Operator Demand THE NATIONAL TRAINING FUND finished out 2017 with two classes; Teaching Techniques 1 (October 23 – 27) and Intermediate Teaching Techniques (October 30 – November 3). Both were hosted by Operating Training Trust Local 12 in Whittier, California. The Teaching Techniques 1 focused on course objectives, teaching outlines, participatory techniques, and case problems. The class was attended by 24 new and seasoned instructors from eight different locals from around the United States. Attending this course also helps keep our training programs in accordance with the new Federal 29- 29 Apprenticeship standards. The Intermediate Teaching Techniques builds on the TT1 class and focuses on developing more participatory techniques, team teaching, PowerPoint and class room set up. This class was attended by 13 instructors from five different locals. This year, all the Teaching Technique classes will be held at the new International Training & Education Center in Crosby, Texas.

CALLS FOR MORE SKILLED Operating Engineers continued to rise unabated last year. The forecast for the new year is much the same, as more large public and private projects are slated to start up. “As the demand for our skilled crane operators continues to grow, it is a challenge to keep up. The pictures attached are Local 470 apprentices assembling another crane to be utilized for training,” reports Local 470 Business Manager Jeff Britt. Repoorts like this one from Local 470 in South Carolina ring true throughout the country. Employment in the heavy construction and oil & gas sectors has remained strong for several years in a row.
