Advanced Training

Education for union members has also changed drastically since Local 99's inception. In 1902, fathers passed their trade on to their sons and fathers were responsible for their sons' education. In 1963, Local 99 officially registered its own Apprenticeship program with the District of Columbia to train apprentices to work in the ever-expanding field of the stationary engineer. In 1970, Local 99 initiated an Advanced Training program to help upgrade journeymen. With the introduction of training modules from the International Union in 1993, Local 99's Advanced Training program took another giant step forward. We now offer a wide range of courses. The Apprenticeship and Advanced Training programs equip our members with the crucial skills and education to succeed in operation and maintenance industry.

Advanced Training classes are typically offered twice a year and are open to members and non-members. Please check our course catalog for class schedules and rates.
