LIUNA’s extensive training program is cutting-edge, modern and aligned with emerging industry trends and advancements. Graduates of the training program excel at applying the newest technology to all projects. LIUNA-trained laborers are in a class all their own.”

  • “Everything you learned in the classes, you were applying that. And what you didn’t know, there were so many other laborers that were showing you...I’ve loved it ever since I’ve been in.”

  • “It is definitely life changing through the Apprenticeship program. Being that I didn’t know much about this type of work until I went through classes and dealt with it hands-on. That definitely helped me throughout my career.”
