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.

IMPACT Regional Director Recognized by Helmets to Hardhats


Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT) Canadian Regional Director Bert Royer was recognized on June 10, 2015, by Helmets to Hardhats Canada for his dedication to helping veterans transition into the skilled trades.

“I am honored to be recognized by Helmets to Hardhats,” says Royer. “The Iron Workers and our employers value the diligence and perseverance of veterans, and those qualities are in line with the Iron Workers mentality.”

Helmets to Hardhats is a Building Trades initiative to provide career opportunities to men and women who are veterans of the Armed Forces.  Mr. Royer, working at the request of Iron Workers Director of Canadian Affairs Darrell LaBoucan, serves as the liaison between the Canadian ironworkers and Helmets to Hardhats to recruit veterans into the ironworking trade.  He continues to assist Canadian veterans with their transition into the ironworking industry.

The certificate of appreciation was presented by Mike Nassif, Helmets to Hardhats Canada’s Director of Placements.

An Iron Workers apprenticeship combines on-the-job training with classroom teaching and pays apprentices while they learn. Apprentices complete an impressive 6,000 to 8,000 hours of hands-on learning, depending on each training center’s requirements. After three to four years, the apprentices graduate as productive, reliable journeyman ironworkers. A comprehensive list of all apprenticeship training centers is available at Visit and for more information.



    Project of the Year Award recognizes contractors who achieve outstanding SAFETY performance. Contractors and their Ironworkers complete countless, complex projects throughout the United States and Canada each year and truly deserve to be recognized nationally for their amazing efforts and dedication.
