Local No. 562 provides hands-on training classes and takes students to a working jobsite. Students are required to take weekly tests for assessment purposes. After the class ends, students are encouraged to continue their education through a union construction apprenticeship training program, community college or four-year college or university.
The PIC provides funding for the instructors, class materials, student lunches and transportation. For more information, contact G. Raymond Hefner, PIC's executive vice president, at 314/770-0093.
