IMPAC T offers Contractor Courses every day of the year through Webinars and interactive online training. Live courses are also available at the annual North American Iron Workers/IMPACT Labor-Management Conference, and during the Annual Ironworkers Instructor Training Program. This year, IMPACT featured a never-before-offered, three-day course on Building Information Modeling (BIM), in addition to “Getting Paid,” “Effective Project Management” and “Cost Estimating and Bidding.”
“Thanks for a wonderful way of advancing my business by offering the Contractors these classes. The interaction with other companies who are also dealing with these same problems really helps,” said Linda Beaulieu, who attended three of the four courses. Beaulieu is President of Lintec, LLC, a contracting company in Andover, Conn.
IMPACT has enjoyed consistent increases in attendance at Contractor Courses since their launch in July 2011. Based on incredibly positive feedback this summer, IMPACT will expand courses in the future.
“We are dedicated to realizing the vision of our IMPACT Co-Chairs, William Brown, President of Ben Hur Construction Company, and Walter Wise, General President of the Iron Workers, which is to double Ironworker market share by 2020,” said IMPACT CEO Kevin Hilton. “IMPACT gives our Contractors what they need to grow and thrive.”
