2016 Assessment and Training

This year’s annual Training and Assessment will take place February 26-28 at Cascade Joinery in Ferndale, Washington, just outside of Bellingham. The topic for this year’s event is Site Work, and will include lift planning, rigging, raising, mechanical and adhesive connections, crane specifications, as well as other topics related to all the work that needs to happen after a frame leaves the shop and before the whetting bush is nailed to the peak.

Attendance for Supervising Journeyworkers and Apprentices is sponsored by the Apprenticeship Training Program (ATP). Registered Journeyworkers current in their dues can attend for the price of food, in this case three catered meals a day. For folks not a part of the ATP, the event cost is $300 and $180 for food.

In advance of the event, the Apprenticeship Training Committee (ATC) has distributed several tests to help the apprentices get the most out of the presentations in Ferndale. A selection of test questions will be posted here over the next few weeks. Click on a question to bring up a larger image.

If you are interested in attending the event, or want answers to the pre-event test questions, email atc@tfguild.org
