Job Corps Corporate Partners Help Bring Training to the Next Level THE IUOE JOB CORPS PROGRAM has been working for a number of years to bring manufacturer-based computer diagnostic training to their Heavy Equipment Mechanic programs across the country. Manufacturer structure and vendor jurisdictional boundaries has created barriers in obtaining the equipment for these training programs. The IUOE National Training Fund is a partner with Caterpillar Inc. nationwide for equipment and training needs, including those at the new state-of-the-art International Training and Conference Center in Crosby, Texas. With the help of Chris Treml, IUOE Construction Training Director, the IUOE Job Corps also became part of this venture. Working with Chris Treml and Tom Smith, Corporate Accounts Product Support Manager from Caterpillar Inc., resulted in the Job Corps Mechanic Programs having complete access to Caterpillar SIS and Caterpillar E/T software to assist in training mechanic students. IUOE Job Corps has been able to purchase laptops, as well as the required hardware from Caterpillar at a reasonable cost for all of the mechanic training facilities throughout the country to perform cutting-edge training and necessary diagnostics on late-model Caterpillar equipment. Caterpillar has also offered regional training to all IUOE Job Corps Mechanic instructors, ensuring the students are talking full advantage of this exceptional opportunity. Joe Dixon, IUOE Regional Coordinator for the Job Corps said of the arrangement, “We have been working diligently to gain this technology, this is a huge advancement for our program and our students. We are excited to offer graduates with this type of knowledge to the work force.” He added, “this would not be possible without the partnership established by the IUOE and the Caterpillar Corporation.” The IUOE Job Corps Training Program is a pre-apprenticeship program offered for young men and women between the ages of 18 and 24. If you are interested in the opportunity to train as a Heavy Equipment Mechanic or Heavy Equipment Operator, please contact Joe Dixon @ 724-675-8022, or inquire through the IUOE International website at www.iuoe.org/training/ iuoe-job-corps WHERE UNIONS MEET THE OUTDOORS!
