Regional Training Centers

Beginning in October of 2002 the National Fund began conducting Train-the-Trainer classes at three Regional Training Centers. These centers are located in Springfield, New Jersey, St. Louis, Missouri, and Oakland, California.

In order to register for classes at the Regional Training Centers please follow the steps below:

  1. For each student attending, fill out a separate registration form. These forms can be accessed via your Local Apprenticeship Coordinator.
  2. Fax or email the form to the Apprenticeship and Training Department at (202) 383-6490 or sbotner@iwintl.org.
  3. The completed registration form must be returned to the Apprenticeship and Training Department no later than four(4) weeks prior to the first day of class. There will be absolutely no exceptions to this requirement.
  4. Classes may be cancelled if there are not enough participants. Dates of classes are subject to change at the discretion of the National Fund office

Remember: The dates listed on the schedule are the dates during which the classes take place. Students who do not live in the area will need to arrive at least one day before the class is scheduled to begin.
