The Laborers Training Center (LTC) provides construction industry vocational training through a full range of classes and apprenticeship programs at its Lino Lakes, Minnesota, facility. The LTC offers continuing education programs for its 9500 participating union members who need to maintain their certifications, develop their skills, and stay abreast of new trends and technologies. The LTC strives to ensure safety and productivity among construction laborers through curricular offerings that cover every aspect of construction laborer training.

The LTC, which began offering continuing education programs in 1989, is operated by the non-profit Construction Laborer’s Training Fund. Since 1999, the LTC’s apprenticeship program has been part of the mandatory, state-regulated requirements for Construction Craft Laborers. Courses at the LTC are available year-round; however, training programs gain momentum during the off season, November through April, when construction projects slow down.

With a manageable enrollment capacity of 150 trainees per week, the LTC provides training in construction skills, environmental issues, and safety procedures. Class size is small enough to ensure that students receive plenty of personalized instruction, and hands-on training in the LTC’s state-of-the art facility.

The LTC offers a full range of skills improvement training and is recognized by the Lead Unit and Asbestos Abatement Unit of the Minnesota Department of Health, the EPA, and OSHA for its intensive high-quality training programs. The LTC seeks to offer a level of training unavailable to the average construction employee from vo-tech or trade schools due to time constraints and curricular requirements.

The LTC is associated with the Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA), as well as the Associated General Contractors (AGC). A board of trustees provides oversight to the LTC with equal management and local representation.
