SSMRC helps apprentices attend training in Houston

The SSMRC recently paid off a $1.3 million mortgage on the Houston training center in exchange for the center setting up a travel fund for apprentices living more than 75 miles from the center. These apprentices can now stay in hotels for free while completing training.

“This fund was established through the efforts of the council so apprentices are not having to face hardship to get their training and progress in their careers,” said Wayne Jennings, executive secretary treasurer of the SSMRC.
