The Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters is hosting an Open House for their expanded Heavy Construction, Pile Driving & Offshore Wind Training Facility in Hammonton, NJ and for their new EAS Carpenters Dive School in Sicklerville, NJ on Wednesday, May 11th. These state-of-the-art training facilities are a major leap forward in the workforce development necessary for the new offshore wind industry, and in preparing for the jobs that will be funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill.
Keeping up with an ever-growing industry requires continuous investment of educational resources. These training facilities will provide carpenters from across the country with the foundational skills needed to aid in the expansion of the wind energy industry and infrastructure work, including concrete formwork, pile driving, rigging and more.
“We’re constantly looking at new ways we can maintain the standard of training we expect for our members, whether that be through new facilities or updated programs. We’re committed to doing what is necessary in preparing for what’s to come with this industry,” explained Phil Diaz, Training Director at the Hammonton Training Center.
Both locations will be open to the public on May 11th. Speakers from the union and local dignitaries will participate in a short program as well explaining the importance of this investment in training by the Carpenters Union.
