The LiUNA Local 183 Training Centre Road Construction program has been one of the Centre’s signature programs and has run successfully over the last 15 years. During the program, trainees cover many areas of this sector, including but not limited to, general labour, curb machine operation, maintenance, as well as, concrete forming and finishing. Sidewalk, curb construction and finishing techniques are all covered in the program. Instructors provide real life scenarios during the hands-on training portion of the program. Health and Safety courses such as W.H.M.I.S., Traffic Control, House Keeping and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are also covered in this program.
The Roads sector is primarily a seasonal one and extremely busy during the peak months of late spring and throughout the summer. Work in this sector could also lead to a position as a General Labourer, Rake Man or Curb Machine Operator. Workers work outdoors and jobs may include sidewalk construction, patch work, parking lots, bridges, roads and highways, just to name a few.
