Ironworkers Local 444 is constantly working to improve safety and training.  Instructors attend upgrade classes to keep up to date on new products and programs.  We are committed to providing our members with the educational tools they need to work safe and remain proficient in the ironworking trade.

We are currently finishing up our last scheduled Signalman Course for Journeyworkers.  Any members interested in taking part in the upcoming Qualified Riggers Training courses should contact the training office.  For those who travel large distances, we will be offering a Signalman/ Qualified Riggers course for distant learners.  The particulars of this training program will soon be posted on this site or you can call the office.
