Learning by Doing


There is no substitute for learning by doing. Both in the classroom and out in the field, instructors at the Laborers’ Training Center focus on instilling in each student the proper techniques they’ll need to become knowledgeable, safe and productive workers.

 

Emphasize Safety


Regardless of topic or size of the class, safety and safety related issues are viewed as an essential component of every course offered at the Center. Learning proper techniques, especially in today’s competitive market, helps insure the safest and most productive job site.
