Superintendents are a vital part of the construction eco-system. GBCA contractors and our labor partners at the United Brotherhood of Carpenters are invested in continued growth for superintendents. For card carrying UBC members, GBCA recommends you take advantage of the Superintendent Career Training (SCT) in Las Vegas. To attend this program, the trainee must:
- Be a UBC Journeyman in good standing.
- Be sponsored by a signatory contractor (your contractor will be working with you throughout the program).
- Be employed in a supervisory position with your contractor, such as a lead or general foreman.
- Have an OSHA 30 Construction card or Canadian equivalent safety class in TRAIN (with the OSHA card or certificates scanned), before signing up for class.
TRAIN is the UBC website that tracks training. Once you have taken the class, give your local training center (not your local union hall) your card from the class and ask them to enter it in TRAIN. When you can see the card on your TVC card, then you may register for class. Do not register unless the OSHA 30 Construction or equivalent is on your TVC card. The OSHA 30 card must be scanned, not the paper certificate issued at the end of class. For Canadian safety classes, the certificate must be scanned, and hours entered.
* On the registration form, the mentor and company contact cannot be the same person.
The trainee attends four sessions, each one approximately six months apart. The trainee sessions are Thursday – Saturday. The mentor attends Program 1 and 3 with their trainee, with class starting at 12:45 pm on Friday and ending at 3:35 pm on Saturday.
Between sessions, the trainee and mentor work together on the job to complete required course projects. The mentor is someone chosen by the signatory contractor that would mentor the trainee throughout the entire eighteen months. One mentor can have up to three trainees.
When you register, once the forms are completed, email the registration and travel forms to SCT.TravelForms@carpenters.org at least 45 days before class. If the class is full, it may be cut off more than 45 days in advance.
* The UBC covers all costs for the program, including room, meals and airfare.
