3rd Year Apprentice

Training UBC’s future leaders

Educating future leaders who put what they learn into practice on the job site lies at the core of the 3rd Year Apprentice Program. Administered through the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC), the program teaches apprentices that professionalism, productivity, skill, and attitude are what makes them successful leaders. Contractors also see gains from the program as participants return to the job site refreshed and ready to promote what they learned and put their experience into practice.

OLD CITC East ViewParticipants stay at the 1 million sq. ft. UBC International Training Centre in Las Vegas, NV. Although the four-day program is intensive, members who have attended often remark that the experience is second to none and invaluable to their construction career.

Our goals are safety first, quality always. To be the best work force and to always meet or exceed contractor’s requirements will lead to more market share!
