    TRAINING CLASSES

    TRAINING IS COMPLETED FOR THE SEASON AT THE UNION HALL. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED!

    >>Training classes are available for FREE to all members of Laborers' Local 621!<<

    Like any industry, construction continues to evolve and change. Work opportunities that were once in high demand may decrease over time, and jobs we never dreamt possible may suddenly be at the forefront of the industry. That's why we must stay on top of our training; no matter how much the construction industry changes, we make sure our workforce stays ahead of the curve.

    Our training classes are offered by the Upstate NY Laborers Training Center, and at the Laborers' Local 621 Union Hall.

    APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
    Apprenticeship is the process of learning a skilled trade through on-the-job training (hands-on experience under the close supervision of a skilled laborer) plus related classroom instruction. The Laborers’ apprenticeship program is for those with little or no experience in the construction trades who want to begin a career as a Skilled Construction Craft Laborer. A graduated pay scale assures that salary reflects the degree of skill achieved.


    The Laborers' Local 621's Skilled Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Program is a 24-month program that has potential openings every year. Our Apprentice Recruitment period is a continuous, open recruitment, which will run from March 11 - August 31, 2024. PLEASE NOTE THAT AN OSHA 10-HOUR OR OSHA 30-HOUR CONSTRUCTION CARD IS REQUIRED FOR ALL PROJECTS IN NYS.


    The following entrance requirements are set forth to comply with New York State employment requirements, insurance regulations, and to ensure the safety & well-being of the Apprentice:

    • Minimum of 18 years of age
    • Be in good health
    • High school diploma or a high school equivalency diploma
    • Reliable transportation to worksites throughout Local 621's jurisdiction and to training classes
    • Valid driver's license
    • Must be able to pass a non-DOT drug screening
    • Be physically able to perform heavy (at least 50lbs) and/or prolonged lifting
    • Must be legally able to work in the United States

    If you meet all the requirements, you are welcome to participate in our Apprenticeship Recruitment Program. Please download an application here or stop by the office during normal business hours to pick up an application. After the application is processed, applicants may be called to schedule an appointment to take the basic math test, which will be held the 3rd Wednesday of every month. After successful completion of both, the applicant may be called in to interview with the Apprenticeship Recruitment team. Applicants are scored based on the following:

    • Educational Achievement
    • Work Experience
    • Seniority (years of employment with the sponsoring firm)
    • Job Aptitude
    • Ability to communicate
    • Willingness to accept the obligation of Apprenticeship
    • Ability to reason and comprehend
    • Interest and motivation

    Interviewed applicants will then be placed on an Apprenticeship Rank List with the highest scoring applicant ranked first. The rank list is continually updated and, should apprentices be called, calling will start from the top of the list. The list of candidates will remain effective for a maximum of one (1) year, in which an applicant will have to re-apply should they still want to be considered for the Apprenticeship Program.

    Laborers' Local 621 is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The recruitment, selection, employment, and training of Apprentices during their apprenticeship shall be without discrimination because of age (40 or older), sexual orientation, genetic information, disability, race, color, religion, national origin, or sex (including pregnancy and gender identity). Laborers' Local 621 takes affirmative action to provide equal opportunity. We are a union with no cultural, religious, or gender boundaries. Everyone is welcome!
