Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust

Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Wind Turbine

In an effort to provide just-in-time training to members that meets the demands of a growing wind turbine marketplace, IMPACT established a partnership with the Francis Tuttle Technology Center (FTTC) in Oklahoma City. FTTC is a member of the Wind Energy Training Consortium (WETC). The WETC is a group of training institutions recognized by the American Wind Energy Association as promoting essential skill training for wind turbine technicians.

The training focuses on two major areas, tower rescue and torque and tension training. The tower rescue course concentrates on the different forms of fall protection, rescue and evacuation techniques and types of equipment. Participants also learn the proper use, care, and maintenance of height safety equipment used in the wind energy workplace. The Torque and Tension course highlights basic fasteners and safety, mechanical torque, electronic torque and hydraulic torque. This part of the training allows the participant a tremendous amount of hands-on learning and application.

Participants receive nationally recognized certifications from three wind turbine industry leaders - Capitol Safety, Snap-On, and HYTORC upon completion.

Contractors Gather to Learn Business Fundamentals

by Matrix SuperAdmin | 01/29/2016
Contractors and contractor-hopefuls gathered in Cleveland, Ohio, January 11-15, 2016 to learn the fundamentals of running a business from IMPACT personnel and professional business consultants retained by IMPACT. IMPACT is the Iron Workers labor-management arm. IMPACT is committed to the development of new and existing contractors, and we understand the pressures and headaches that can sometimes come along with launching a new business.

Contractors and contractor-hopefuls gathered in Cleveland, Ohio, January 11-15, 2016 to learn the fundamentals of running a business from IMPACT personnel and professional business consultants retained by IMPACT.  IMPACT is the Iron Workers labor-management arm. IMPACT is committed to the development of new and existing contractors, and we understand the pressures and headaches that can sometimes come along with launching a new business.

To better assist these businesses, IMPACT launched the Construction Contracting Business Fundamentals Academy in 2015. The inaugural Business Fundamentals Academy was held at the 31st Annual Ironworker Instructor Training Program in Ann Arbor, Mich., in July 2015.

This 5-day course is designed for current and future contractors, including ironworkers who are interested in starting a business. The course focuses on developing fundamental business skills, such as developing an operations and business plan, obtaining financing, setting up an accounting system, collecting money from customers, understanding contract terms and conditions, identifying insurance requirements, establishing safety programs, funding work and avoiding problems that will compromise success. The course is designed to provide the business foundation that will strengthen a contractor’s ability to be profitable during the early startup phase of the business.

Dale Hansen from MDA Training; Devin Pipkin from TrueNorth; Drew Yorpel from Milestone Safety; and Ken Roper, Dave Barry and Tyler Pare from FMI led modules focusing on safety, insurance and more.

“The Business Fundamentals Academy was incredible! My husband and I learned so much invaluable information,” said Shannon Opel from Superior Steel in Huntingburg, Ind. “We put together an action plan for next steps. It’s not as easy as we thought to start a business. I’m very, very happy IMPACT offered this for us.”

The Construction Contracting Business Fundamentals Academy will be offered multiple times in 2016.

For more information on the course, please contact Dr. Cindy Menches as 800-545-4921.
