The Kansas Iron Workers Joint Apprenticeship Committee and Trust Fund (JAC), operates the Kansas Training Facility. In addition to our State Apprenticeship Councils (SACs) US Department of Labor registered four-year apprenticeship program, we offer Journeyman training and welding certification courses.

The JAC was established in 1953 to serve the members and contractors of Local 606 (Kansas merged into Local 24 in 2006, but, still maintains a separate Apprenticeship training program). Currently, the JAC is erecting a new training facility located at 35th and Santa Fe in Wichita, Kansas.

The training facility is an Ironworkers International Welding Program Accredited Test Facility, and is working on completing the requirements of the Ironworkers Apprenticeship Certification Program. To meet the instructional requirements, the program current employees five part-time specialty instructors to teach the apprentice and journeyman courses.

Journeyman upgrade training and participation has steadily increased primarily due to mandates within the collective bargaining agreement and site specific training requirements. Courses offered include: OSHA Ten & Thirty Hour, OSHA Sub Part R, OSHA Sub Part CC, Scaffold Training, Fall Protection, Foreman Training, Welder Training & Qualification, First Aid/CPR, Lead Hazard Awareness, Survival of the Fittest, Computer Classes, Qualified Rigger &
Signal Parson, MSHA Certification, Layout Instruments, Ornamental Training, Powder Actuated Tools, Aerial Lift Training, Forklift Operation Training, Reinforcing Steel/Post-Tensioning, and Blueprint Reading.

Apprentice enrollment averages approximately ten to twenty apprentices per year. Apprentice training runs from September through May with classes scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. two to three Saturday’s per month.

The training center is located in Wichita at the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local Union 441 headquarters.
