Train the Trainer at WCC

June 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

WCC welcomes nearly 4,000 union trainers to Ann Arbor from throughout the U.S.

Washtenaw Community College (WCC) will welcome nearly 4,000 trainers from four national skilled trades organizations to campus this summer.

WCC’s partnerships with skilled trades groups have been growing for decades, with the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers last year hosting its first-ever training event on campus.

Approximately 175 roofers, waterproofers and allied workers have kicked off the summer series of skilled trades training sessions at WCC this week. Topics range from basic computer skills, fall prevention and safety to crane signaling and the latest approaches in installation, maintenance and repair of single-ply roofing systems.

“Train the Trainer” events at WCC will continue in July, with 110 members of the Operational Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association and up to 650 members of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers Union.

Training weeks will conclude in mid August with an estimated 3,000 members of the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters converging on campus.

Destination Ann Arbor will host a block party with live entertainment and sidewalk dining downtown the evening of August 15, as well as the 10th annual UA 5K Run.

“We are thrilled to welcome back to campus so many of our valued trades partners. The skilled trades play an essential and important role in supporting and building better communities, and we are very proud of the relationships we’ve built with these organizations,” said WCC President Dr. Rose B. Bellanca.

Union trainers typically spend a week on campus enrolled in classroom credit classes and hands-on laboratory instructional training to stay up to date on their skills and the technological developments within their industries. Trainers then return home to train their members based all over the country.
