    Chicago Carpenters offering free AWS certifications

    Saw this video on YouTube “Carpenters1256” talking about there Advance Training program for anyone with or looking to join Chicago Carpenters. Link here:



    A person could join Chicago Carpenters and then after or during apprenticeship they could take classes for a refunded $25 at the end of the class. They offer AWS certified welder certificates (if your welding skill qualifies you) in stick, mig or tig.
    That’s a savings of thousands if one was to go it alone. With benefits Chicago Carpenters make close to $100. an hour. Might be a great opportunity for an intelligent & skilled person.

    It's great when a company not only sets requirements to employees, but also helps to have the necessary qualifications.

    Now for the rest of the story. All training through the carpenters is not paid. If you need any training they offer you must sign up for it months ahead of time and the classes are only a couple times a year and during normal working days and hrs. If you happen to be working a union job that they sent you to when that training comes up you have to make a choice, do I take the training and lose the job I am on or pass it by and keep working and try again next year.

    There is on average 2 weeks of training every year that you must take to keep any qualifications( this is after you are a journeyman ) you may have that is all unpaid and only offered during regular working hrs at the training centers. If you are an apprentice you must take one week of training per month for 2 years all unpaid unless you can work it out just right with your employer to keep you on while you are in school. ( 70% of the time this does not happen ) .

    More and more the union makes you do any saftey training demanded by an employer on your own time. The union is making locals larger and larger engulfing one or more states and making "regions " that you must work in. you must travel in most places with no compensation for motels ,food or fuel. The only way to not have to do this is if you live in a large metro area and even then to keep busy sometime you have to travel.

    Just so you know, the Carpenters union is the worst of all the trade unions. They will not be there when you need them. They cave to the demands of all the other trade unions regularly and give your work away to them rather than fight it.
