Construction begins on new training center in Russellville, Arkansas

Construction of a millwright and carpenter training center is underway in Russellville, Arkansas. Compared to the current facility, the 35,000-square-foot new center will offer additional classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, more training space, and extra administrative room for local union offices.

“The main advantage of this new training center will be having more space for training,” said Bryan Spradley, training director, Arkansas/Oklahoma Carpenters Apprenticeship and Training Program. “We started in a small, two-room facility and moved to the current location, and now we’re moving to a new building that’s more than double that size.”

The center’s high-visibility location is expected to help with recruiting members and marketing to potential industry partners.
