The Steel Conference is being held in conjunction with the World Steel Bridge Symposium.
The Steel Erectors Association of America announced that subject matter experts representing general contractor, fabricator and erector member companies will be featured speakers at NASCC: The Steel Conference in Orlando, Fla., April 13 to 15.
In addition SEAA will exhibit in Booth #428, providing information about the association's Ironworker Craft Training Program and Department of Labor Apprenticeship Program.
SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Craft Training includes NCCER Ironworker Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Rigger Modules; Signal Person Modules; plus custom SEAA curriculum. SEAA administers Ironworker and other NCCER Assessments at member company locations or on the job site.
SEAA's U.S. Department of Labor Apprenticeship Program for Ironworkers provides a template for SEAA member companies to establish registered apprenticeship programs in their region, allowing erectors and fabricators to design training prescriptions for journeyman level workers to fill any gaps found in knowledge and skills. Ironworker apprenticeships also increase competitive pricing.
The Steel Conference is being held in conjunction with the World Steel Bridge Symposium. Together both conferences will deliver more than 3,500 attendees involved in design and construction of steel-framed buildings and bridges. In all, more than 100 sessions for structural engineers, steel fabricators, detailers and erectors provide premier educational opportunities.
