Training Programs


The Carpenters International Training Center (ITC) provides state-of-the-art training for members of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC).

With a network of training centers throughout North America, we transfer skills and knowledge from highly-skilled and experienced instructors to union members using cutting-edge curriculum developed at the Carpenters International Training Center. Increasing the skills of our members and enabling them to do their very best work on the job is our top priority.

We consider skill, safety, productivity, and attitude to be the keys to success for our members, our contractors, and our union. We are committed to providing the union and our signatory contractors a strong competitive advantage in the construction industry.

Collaborative Leadership

Building Jobsite Leaders

January 22-24, 2024, March 25-27, 2024, June 10-12, 2024, August 12-14, 2024

This three-day program is designed to give jobsite supervisors the tools necessary to improve the overall jobsite, taking it from good to great.

Today’s leaders need an expanded repertoire of skills and a new mindset to succeed in the increasingly fast-paced, chaotic, and highly competitive industry. This calls for more collaborative-based leadership, and the creation of a partnership culture – one that can harness the knowledge and expertise of all stakeholders. This allows leaders to leverage everyone’s best, and better compete.

Building Jobsite Leaders program is open to all supervisory personnel on the jobsite, including:

  • Foremen
  • General Foremen
  • Safety Manager(s)
  • Project Manager(s)
  • Estimator(s)
  • Superintendent(s)
  • Owners, etc.

Superintendent Career Training

Plan For The Future


The concept of the Superintendent Career Training (SCT) program is to closely integrate both the technical aspects of construction job site management and the personal/career development needs of the individual trainee.

The Carpenters International Training Fund program utilizes a unique combination of classroom instruction, company-sponsored mentoring and on-the-job training to deliver skill training customized to the individual needs of the sponsoring contractor and the Superintendent/General Foreman trainee.

Delivered in four individual programs at the UBC’s International Training Center, the structured, concentrated learning components are integrated with mentor sessions and on-the-job learning throughout the 18-month program.

For more info on superintendent training, you can download the brochure, or check both the UBC Website for info about the program and its timeline. You can also contact the UBC at 702-938-1111 ext. 5.
