Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Helmets to Hardhats Pilot Skills Training Program, Puts Veterans on the Jobs


Helmets to Hardhats Ironworker Industry Preparation Program in partnership with Cerritos College opens 7 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, April 6 through April 17 at Local 416/433 Apprenticeship Training Facility, 5555 Fresca Drive in La Palma.

The jobless rate of veterans serving after September 2001 remains high – 7.2 percent vs. 5.5 percent for the general population – according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The District Council of Iron Workers of the State of California and Vicinity designed a program to help our veterans gain new skills and find job opportunities in ironworking.

“This is our way of giving back to the guys who help protect our country, plus a great method to use the military training to enhance our workforce,” says Ironworkers Local 416 Business Agent Richard Byrd.

This class through classroom and hands-on training, will learn about the ironworker industry and safe techniques for placing and tying rebar.

Ironworkers build bridges, stadiums, commercial buildings and power-generating structures. These jobs are projected to grow 22 percent by 2022, which is faster than the average for all occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

All graduates will be assigned to jobs with a contractor and placed in the Ironworkers apprenticeship program.

The District Council of Iron Workers of the State of California and Vicinity operates training centers in California, Nevada and Arizona. Learn more by visiting and
