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.

Toledo Ironworkers Local 55 member, veteran jumps from plane to raise awareness


David Kolbe is a member of Ironworkers Local 55 Toledo and jumped on July 4th to raise awareness for Helmets to Hardhats (WNWO).

TOLEDO, Ohio (WNWO) — 50 years after he served in the 82nd Airborne Division, Veteran David Kolbe jumped out of a plane again, this time to raise awareness.

Kolbe joined the army at just 17 years old, and came home to work as an ironworker.

He is now a member of Ironworkers Local 55 Toledo.

Kolbe wants veterans to find a trade of their own.

He is working with Helmets to Hardhats, which connects retired service members with training and career opportunities in the construction industry.

"They know how to work on a team, they know how to work safe, they know how to depend on each other, and those are the attributes that really help before you even get the training for the trades."

If you're a veteran and are interested in Helmets to Hardhats, visit their website here.
