Our Advantage

Top Priority Placed on Training

The SSMRC and the UBC place a top priority on developing the total professional millwright: Someone who is not only a technical expert in their craft, but who also demonstrates effective communication and leadership qualities. 

The UBC invests more than $200 million every year into training through its International Training Center (ITC). Hundreds of courses are created, refined, and offered in either a “train-the-trainer” format or in direct member education. Content is adjusted as the industry evolves, thanks to a talented staff of education and construction professionals, subject matter experts, and industry partnerships. 

Educating Construction Leaders

Equally important is creating a strong, informed, educated core of construction leaders for the future, and the UBC’s Department of Education and Training tackles that responsibility for thousands of our members every year. The DET learning system includes specific training tools and programs designed to improve both individual and organizational performance at every level. Its focus centers on developing heightened abilities in communication, leadership, management, public speaking, and marketing. 

This level of support and access to specialized training programs is unmatched.

Here is just a sampling of the programs the UBC brings to our Southern States Millwrights members:
