This one-hour training class covers new Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) rules and provides updated anti-harassment information. You’ll learn about new protected classes, the Fund’s commitment to promote our new EEO Pledge, and self-check, and the complaint process. Anyone in contact with apprentices is encouraged to take this class at their earliest opportunity. The Fund is required by law to reach out and provide this training opportunity.

Apprentices and everyone who comes in contact with apprentices (including Journeyman, Agents, Contractors, Training Staff and mentors) must take this class.

Daytime, evening, and weekend classes are available. Call your local training center for dates/times.

Our Fund’s Equal Employment Opportunity Pledge

Southwest Carpenter and Affiliated Trades Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee will take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in apprenticeship and will operate the apprenticeship program as required under Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 30.
