If you did not receive a newsletter, you can print one by going to the home page tab and clicking on the This link. We are offering an extensive list of courses at our new Glenmont facility and it is our hope that more members will take advantage of these training opportunities to upgrade their skills and thereby increase their chances for employment. As more and more of the job opportunities require specific certifications, it is crucial that you participate in the upgrade program in order to broaden your skill base and qualify yourself for these positions. You'll need a TWIC card for work on the Waterways, the Port of Albany and parts of the dredging project . Also your 10 hour OSHA card and Hazmat. These job opportunities are only available to those who have these qualifications

Also, if you received your initial forklift truck training, please check the date on your card, as it is a 3 year certificate and you may need to attend a refresher class this year.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming classes please contact Bill Gray or
