We would like to congratulate our members who graduated from the 24 Hour Foreman Class on December 18. Classes like this are going to help our Local grow stronger coming out of this Great Recession. We all know how important a foreman is in running a successful job. By successful, we mean a job that makes money for the contractor, provides a safe environment, and promotes quality and job satisfaction. These exceptional foremen are the people whose reputations help us sign contracts, and who reduce problems because of their knowledge.

 People like those described above helped us produce our curriculum, and they have all acknowledged that they learned some things in the process.

We hope everyone will take the time to attend this class and others that are coming up. We all could use a little more knowledge in order to become a more valuable commodity in the market place.

And we can grow a stronger union with better job sites if we all improve our skills.

Thank you to our superior instructors Al Blouin and Joe Hannan.

And congratulations to our 24 Hour Foreman graduates: Phil Bottoms, Derrick Burgess, Carlos Chavarin, Louis Contreras, Rick Elli, Alexander Garcia, Frederic Hansen, James Johnston, Andrew Jones, Brian Lyon, Mike Pachano, Tommy Parsons, Arnold Prewitt, Joe Ray, Mike Raymond, Warren Storrs, Dave Struck.

Call (206) 762-9286 to put yourself on the list for the next class. 
 Cement Masons
NRMCA Pervious Concrete Certification 
Pervious Concrete allows stormwater to pass through pavement to the soil beneath.  The need for pervious concrete certified individuals is growing due to increasing demand for sustainable and low impact development.
This is a one-day class. A test is administered at the end of class. Students must pass the test in order to be certified. Past experience has proven that merely attending class is usually insufficient to pass the test. Participants are asked to pick up the book in advance from the Training Center in Georgetown and invest study time prior to class.

This is a three day training class.  You must attend all three days for certification.
