In May, the Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund (IIIATF) held a four-day Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) worker trainthe-trainer course. The class was taught by Gary Gustafson and Steve Surtees from CPWR: The Center for Construction Research and Training.
The IIIATF is dedicated to training and keeping all Local JATCs educated and up-to-date with training enhancement possibilities. This train-the-trainer course allows participants to train their Local membership in both the CPWR 8-hour ICRA Awareness Course and the 24-hour ICRA Worker Course.
“This ICRA worker train-the-trainer is the next step in what these health care facilities are looking for in the workers who engage in construction activities on their properties” said HFIAW Local 17 Training Coordinator Robert McGuckin. “The Building Trades and CPWR put this program together, so each craft has the ability to perform their work under the ICRA guidelines.” McGuckin praised the quality training and continued dedication of the IIIATF to have instructors from across North America provide training to members and contractors when needed.
The IIIATF congratulates the following Brothers for successfully completing the ICRA train-the-trainer class: Shawn Craven, Nicholas Feipel and Robert McGuckin from Local 17; Ricky Miguez from Local 22; Brian Cavey from Local 24; N. Scott Yoh from Local 38; Paul Davis from Local 41; Kenneth Craft from Local 50; Irving Castillo from Local 67; Todd Miller from Local 84; Jeremy Wicke from Local 127; Joshua Sherrard from Local 131 and
