For National Apprenticeship Week, GBCA is spotlighting some of the trades with which we closely work. Today, we look at the Operating Engineers.

Operating Engineers operate and maintain a variety of powered equipment. These range in complexity from air compressors, earth boring machines and bulldozers, to very large power shovels and cranes. Engineers operate this equipment to dig or excavate basements, trenches, post holes and tunnels; to raze obsolete or dilapidated structures; to move, hoist, load and transport sand and gravel; to provide compressed air or electric power for powered hand tools.
