Southwest Carpenters Training Fund Bakersfield
Established in 1958, the Southwest Carpenters Training Fund is committed to providing the highest level of training and lifelong learning opportunities for United Brotherhood of Carpenters union members. We also pride ourselves in meeting the training needs of the union’s participating employers.
We firmly believe that, to meet the challenges of rapidly changing technology in the construction industry and the globalization of our economy, our members must become highly knowledgeable in a broad range of skills. To that end, we employ continuous curriculum development to provide the training certifications needed for journey workers to advance in their chosen fields, as well as necessary training enhancements for new and emerging technologies. We also partner with local education agencies to ensure a highly professional approach to training. And our instructors encourage the development of the work ethics and values that create highly skilled and productive workers.
