LONG ISLAND, N.Y., May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Thursday, May 24th, the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) will host two free information sessions for the Sisters in the Brotherhood (SIB) Pre-Apprentice Program at the Carpenters Training Center (270 Motor Parkway, Hauppauge, NY 11788) in Long Island, New York at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The session will give Long Island women the opportunity to learn more about a fulfilling career in carpentry.

SIB Pre-Apprentice program is a six-week training course that prepares women to become carpenter apprentices. The 40-hour per week course trains women carpenters in a variety of in-class curriculum and hands-on training in mathematics, occupational safety and hazards, hand/power tool training and job-site culture. After successful completion of the program, women graduate to the NRCC Apprenticeship program.

Susan Schultz, NRCC Sisters in the Brotherhood Chair, actively works to recruit women in the Long Island-area and encourages all women in the region to attend the information sessions to learn more about beginning a rewarding career in carpentry.

“The information session is an essential first step in becoming a Union Carpenter,” said Schultz. “It prepares women who are interested in carpentry to understand the expectations and requirements of the Pre-Apprentice Program. Women who have graduated from our Sisters in the Brotherhood program are already on the job site and earning a good salary and health and retirement benefits.”
