Training the Next Generation

Local 534 was excited to debut our new VR training system to the next generation at the Girls in the Trades Conference and YouthBuild Boston. Both groups were able to try out the new VR system and get a feel for what it’s like on a real-life job site. The new VR system demonstrates first-hand how appealing joining our crafts can be as we work to recruit the next generation of plasterers and cement masons.

We’re revolutionizing how we train our apprentices and continue to deliver high-quality education. By mimicking natural work environments, pre-apprentices, apprentices, and journeypeople learn proper techniques before ever setting foot on a job.
