IBEW Local plans foreman training

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 300 recently announced an intensive construction foreman's training session for its members. The five-week course, coordinated by the union's Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, follows the "project control system" methodology, a mechanism that allows managers to efficiently execute the work being performed. Core subjects covered include installation, documentation, administration and supervision. Classes run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 1, March 8 and March 15 at Local 300's South Burlington union hall on Gregory Drive. "Leadership skills are undoubtedly in high demand throughout the building trades. This lesson provides best practices for running a construction job from soup to nuts," said Apprenticeship Director Jean Watkins. "Local 300 apprentices and licensed electricians receive the finest training in the business, which ensures that customers get top-shelf service from our members and contractors." Jeff Sanford, owner of J.S. Electric in St. Albans, will teach the course. For details about future IBEW Local 300 classes, contact Watkins at (802) 864-5864 or jmw@ibewlocal300.org.
