The Carpenters International Training Center (ITC) is where we develop and train our most skilled Carpenters so that they can take what they learn back to their Locals.

The ITC supports the creation of new courses that meet contractors’ evolving needs and is home to ongoing refinements in core courses, such as:

  • interior systems
  • scaffolding
  • concrete formwork
  • commercial doors and hardware
  • gas and steam turbine installation and maintenance.

It’s never been more important for Carpenters at any stage of their career to be trained in Infection Control Risk Assessments (ICRA).  When construction workers are trained in ICRA, healthcare projects, patients, employees, and construction trade staff are safer. 

ICRA training is essential to reduce the risk of infection during the design, development, construction, and renovation of healthcare facilities. ICRA addresses the spread of contaminants released above ceilings, inside walls, or under floors during pre-construction activities and construction. ICRA involves control of many factors: including air pressure differentials, anterooms, medical facility awareness, effective communication, and personal protective equipment.

The ICRA protocol involves:

  • risk minimization
  • identification of hazardous materials
  • documentation
  • record-keeping
  • reporting
