IMPACT Focuses on Contractor Training

Post Time:Apr 18,2012Classify:Company NewsView:324


The Ironworker Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT) will offer its contractor courses, July 17-19, at the Ironworker Instructor Training Program at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Mich.


"When we first offered contractor courses at last year's training program, we held two-day-long, hands-on courses," says Eric Waterman, CEO of IMPACT. "After a surge in interest throughout the ironworker community, we've doubled the number of courses to four, including a three-day course on Building Information Modeling (BIM)."


This year's courses will include: "Cost Estimating and Bidding are Not Rock Science" on July 17, which focuses on recognizing total costs of jobs and using technology to improve the estimating process. "Effective Project Management" on July 18 hones in on management and leadership skills. "Getting Paid" on July 19 addresses the ins and outs of cash flow.


IMPACT also will offer "Using Graphical Models to Manage Steel Erection," July 17-19, a never-before-offered BIM course developed by experts at Tekla, Inc.


"Mobile and graphics technologies are becoming infinitely easier to use," says Rick Sullivan, director of education and training for IMPACT. "We hope this course will inspire our Contractors to take the plunge and join the construction industry's technology revolution."
