We build the skylines of central Iowa, the places where you live, work and shop. We reinforce the concrete in our roadways, floors and walls. That level of skill isn’t achieved over night. It happens with hard work and dedication to be the best in our business.
These skills are taught at our state-of-the-art training center. This is where we teach the young men and women of central Iowa all the skills to be the best, safest and most skilled in our craft. We train our students on OSHA, where they will receive an OSHA 30 certificate. We train them to be certified riggers, and signalers, and we certify our members in multiple welding processes in house. We are an AWS accredited training facility, which means we can certify our members in house with nationally recognized welding certifications.
In our training facility we train our members the hands-on techniques they need to be effective on the job. In our shop class we train them how to tie the various types of rebar ties and which ties to utilize for walls, beams, and mats. We have a hands-on rigging course where we calculate the weight of the pieces to be lifted, inspect the rigging, select the appropriate rigging for the lifts, and lift them safely.
The Iron Workers/AWS National Welding Certification Program is a highly respected and nationally recognized program. The program is a partnership with the American Welding Society and provides an unparalleled standard of excellence for welder training, qualification and certification. The benefits for Iron Workers Local 67 members, signatory employers and owners are significant. The certifications provide portability; the ownership is with the ironworker welder and allows him/her to weld from the Atlantic to the Pacific, eliminating the need for requalification, saving time and providing a huge cost savings.
With economic growth, the rebuilding of North America's infrastructure and the amount of power plants being built and refurbished, the IW is training and testing members to meet the demands of the industry and is committed to providing the skilled union ironworker welders needed to get the job done right the first time.
The Iron Workers welding certification program database operates as an online, web-based system and offers a fast, efficient method for the transfer of information, shortening the waiting period needed for Iron Workers members to get certification cards in hand and access the jobsite. The system also offers Iron Workers employers a quick check method for verification of qualifications/certifications issued through the National Training Fund. We have a team of instructors who are the best in the business. Our instructors our trained annually to maintain and update their credentials at Washetnaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We believe in keeping a highly skilled training department to pass on the best and most valuable trainings to the next generations of Iron Workers.
