Outline of the Gladiator Training Program

    Our Locals 846/847 Gladiator Training Program is the first step of the comprehensive apprenticeship program designed to quickly recognize specific individuals who have the physical and mental aptitude, to not only succeed as an Ironworker but to also excel and flourish.  The biggest advantage of the Gladiator Program is that it helps to accelerate the learning process for each potential apprentice because of the constant one on one training, and personal attention they receive during their first forty hours of training.  Ultimately, the Gladiator program helps to alleviate the lost productivity typically associated with training an apprentice in the field, which lends to more enjoyable learning and working experience.  The fact is, two of the most common day-to-day setbacks we see while training an apprentice in the field, is the burden of lost production and the sometimes-unbearable stress it places on an apprentice who may be struggling to keep up with his journeyman counterpart.  Our Gladiator program will help to mitigate both of those issues.
