NRCC Hosts Information Sessions for Women

| March 19, 2018

Philadelphia – The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) recently hosted two information sessions to educate Philadelphia-area women how they can start a career as a well-paid union carpenter through the Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) Pre-Apprenticeship Program. The information sessions were held at the NRCC Training Center in Philadelphia.

The SIB Pre-Apprenticeship program is a six-week training course that prepares women to become carpenter apprentices. The 40-hour-per-week course trains women carpenters in a variety of in-class curriculum and hands-on training in mathematics, occupational safety and hazards, hand/power tool training, and jobsite culture. After successful completion of the program, women carpenters graduate to the NRCC Apprentice Program. 

NRCC Sisters in the Brotherhood Chair Susan Schultz, actively works to recruit women in the Philadelphia-area. “The information session is an essential first step in becoming a Union Carpenter,” said Schultz. “It prepares women who are interested in carpentry to understand the expectations and requirements of the Pre-Apprenticeship Program. Women who have graduated from our Sisters in the Brotherhood program are already on the job site and earning a good salary and health and retirement benefits.”
