Our Union is proud to operate four training centers that offer U.S. Department of Labor approved certified training courses through the Michigan Laborers Training & Apprentice Institute (MLTAI). For over forty years, MLTAI has trained new Laborers in our apprenticeship program and helped existing Members upgrade their skills.
If you are a Member, and would like to sign up for classes, please contact your Local Union. If you are not a Member, and would like to learn more about our apprenticeship program, please visit our information sign up form here.
We take training seriously and that is why we have invested over $42 million building our state of the art training centers at no cost to taxpayers.
Laborers are reimbursed training expenses, and as a result, we have paid over $20 million in stipends to our Members.
We have trained over 42,000 Laborers since the founding of our training program in 1972.
