In a pioneering breakthrough, the OPCMIA recently opened an international fireproofing training center. Located at Plasterers and Cement Masons Local 692’s training facility in Merrillville, Indiana, it is the only center of its kind in the country.
The training center will empower OPCMIA members with the skills to be the best fireproofing workers in the world and ensure our union’s jurisdiction over this expanding area of work.
The video from the International Fireproofing Training Center’s grand opening sheds more light on its importance. Not only will it increase work opportunities for OPCMIA members; it will also make everyone as safe as possible in their offices, homes and commercial establishments. Indeed, it will save lives.
