Boilermaker Training Centers and Programs
The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers has always placed a high value on training and is affiliated with several training and safety programs considered among the best in the world: the MOST Program and the Boilermaker National Apprenticeship Program. In addition, the Boilermakers maintain XX training centers that boast state-of-the-art equipment.
The MOST Programs include 17 safety and training programs developed specifically for the Boilermaker trade. MOST stands for Mobilization, Optimization, Stabilization and Training and was designed to increase the skill levels of all Boilermakers while providing value to the owners and contractors who employ them. Since its inception, MOST programs have resulted in a 90% reduction in OSHA recordable injuries.
