    Carpenters Union Opens $15 Million Training Center in Ontario (California) to Ensure Pool of Skilled Construction Workers for Burgeoning Inland Empire - Business Wire (press release)
    The United Brotherhood of Carpenters is investing $175 million annually in training nationwide to keep its members competitive in today’s economy. The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters is the nation’s largest regional council with 60,000 members in Southern California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah. It operates 14 training centers in the region, spending $20 million a year on training programs.

    The Ontario Training Center already has 165 apprentices signed up for its inaugural training classes that will start November 13. Larger than a football field, the center is a state-of-the-art facility for the Carpenters Union. Its 39,885-square-foot open floor accommodates instruction in steel stud framing, drywall installation, concrete forms, scaffold erection and bridge construction.
