Get Trained, Earn More

There are currently Journeyman Upgrade classes available at the Mid-Atlantic Carpenters Training center located in Upper Marlboro, Baltimore, and Ashland, VA. To ensure our union and our contractors are the most competitive, we need members like you to complete these classes. See below for available classes:

  • OSHA 10
  • Scaffold User/40 Hours Training
  • Power Actuated Device
  • Aerial Lift

With your participation and completion of all (4) courses, you are entitled to the special Union Carpenter Action Network (UCAN) incentive program, earning a Kevlar Hard Hat, valued at $80.

In addition to the available courses and offer of a special gift, we are encouraging all members to fill out the below survey. We want to know your thoughts on how to best accommodate training for our members. By taking part in this survey, you are taking the first step to provide yourself with the skills needed to better the financial well-being of you and your union brothers and sisters.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Local office.
