Three Companies Join SEAA’s Ironworker Training Network

Three companies have newly joined the Steel Erectors Association of America’s network of SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Training Units and Assessment Sites.

Participation in the program grants SEAA member companies access to nationally recognized credentials for ironworkers, crane operators, and rigger/signal persons.

Erection Welding Contractors LLC, Pro Steel Erectors Inc., and Evolution Safety Resources have recently joined SEAA network, bringing the number of participating companies to 27 nationwide.

Erection and Welding Contractors LLC (EWC) is an AISC certified fabricator and erector in Berlin, Connecticut. EWC is also certified as a minority business enterprise in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.

Pro Steel Erectors is a full-service structural steel erector in Glendale, Arizona. It will offer SEAA/NCCER Ironworker training and assessments to its employees.

“We set a goal in 2019 to jumpstart an onsite training program for our employees and the SEAA/NCCER training program allows us to do just that,” said Roger Holmen, director of safety and training at Pro Steel Erectors. “We want to further educate our employees and expand their skills. It also provides added benefits for new hires as our company continues to grow,” he said.

Evolution Safety Resources, Raleigh, North Carolina, provides custom workplace training programs for employers. The addition of SEAA/NCCER ironworker training credentials complements the other training programs Evolution Safety Resources offers, including welding, pipefitting, highway/heavy construction, and heavy highway helper. “We are also actively working toward earning the ability to offer NCCER crane operator and rigger/signal person qualifications,” said Julia Kunlo, vice president.

“Being an Accredited Training Sponsor of NCCER provides our members access to not only the ironworker curriculum, but more than 70 training programs at a reduced price,” said Tim Eldridge, president of Education Services Unlimited and administrator of SEAA’s Craft Training and Assessment.
