In construction, if you don’t produce, you’re not an asset to anyone—not the general contractor, the project manager, or the end-user. UBC members know this, our contractors know this, and our union’s leadership knows it. That’s why our foundation is to deliver skilled, productive work.
UBC training is the hallmark of our union. While our members may have vastly different skill sets, they all share the pride and commitment of being the most highly trained in the most up-to-date theories and methodologies, tools, installation procedures, and safety measures.
It’s the UBC’s Edge, and it’s the asset our contractors can bank on
Please visit http://www.carpentersunion.org/idcard/ to see a video on how you can check your training verification card. Classes highlighted in yellow will be expiring in 6 months or less. Once expired, the class disappears from your card.
Check your Training Verification Card for the expiration date of your Qualification/Certification courses. Six months prior to the expiration date, the course will turn yellow to bring it to your attention. When your Qualification/Certification expires, the records will disappear from your card.
Be sure to schedule a refresher course prior to the expiration date.
KEEP YOUR CARDS CURRENT!
Are you looking for a class that is not on the schedule? Is there a class that you would like to see offered that currently is not? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with:
Your Name, UBC# and Phone Number
In the subject line, please list the name of the class.
You will be contacted by email when a class will be available online. To ensure that the class will run, register for the class and submit a check for the Reservation Fee after being notified.
A “Course Reservation Fee” in the amount of $25.00 is required for ALL* Skill Advancement Courses in order to “reserve” your place in class. This procedure has been implemented to give members every opportunity possible to attend those courses requested.
*Exception: Safety and Health - Health & Welfare Pension Seminar Pre-Retirement Planning - No Course Reservation Fee required for this informational seminar
Members in good standing wanting to register for courses offered in PEWAUKEE, WI should contact that training center directly. Course listings and registration information can be viewed at http://www.sewctc.org/ .
Please have your UBC ID number available.
Every member who has completed training should have received a new photo ID from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC).This new card has a QR code that links to the records of your completed UBC classes that were taken throughout the years. This new card replaces all of the old cards that were issued at the completion of a class; no more individual cards will be issued. Any new training will appear on your new card after the successful completion of the class.
Members who did not receive a card may have an old address on file. Please contact your local union to update your mailing address. The school will then need to be notified so that a new card can be issued. Members who have not completed any training will receive a new ID card once they successfully complete their first training class.
With new ID card in hand, please check your training history by scanning the QR code on the front of the card. After scanning, you will see your name and photo as well as your local union and classification level. When you click on "Training" you will see a list of the classes that are in your records and the expiration dates of classes, such as Rigging. Please be aware that if the expiration date has passed, the records will not appear on your card.
If you do NOT have a picture on your card, you must come to the Elk Grove Village school between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. to have your picture taken. A new card will then be issued and mailed to you with your picture on it.
If a UBC class that you have completed does not appear on the card, please call the school and we can update your records as needed. 847-640-7373. Please be aware that outside training (non-UBC training that you have completed) will not appear on your card.
Carry your new ID card with you at all times. Treat it as a "resume in your back pocket" and be prepared to present it to a prospective employer.
