Journeyman Extension Program

Certified by the American Welding Society (AWS) as an accredited welding facility allows us to administer exams as well as issue certifications for Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), 6G Pipe and Stainless Steel welding. Test plates can be examined on site by one of our AWS certified welding inspectors. With 33 welding booths, we conduct welding classes three to four nights a week to help our Journeymen sharpen their skills for any of the AWS exams mentioned above or for the New York City and/or New York State welding tests. The New York City test is offered every April and November, the New York State test is offered multiple times throughout the year as often as our demand requires. Along with the welding we offer our Journeymen any of the classes that are offered to our apprentices (see above) along with additional courses such as New York City MTA Track Training.

As new training and safety courses are developed they will be implemented into our curriculum to keep our members and contractors the leaders in the construction industry.
