Helmets to Hardhats
America has always maintained a solemn promise to its military veterans to ensure them a successful transition to civilian life, and Iron Workers Local 378 pledges to participate in this commitment by providing lucrative opportunities for all military veterans.
Helmets to Hardhats is a national, non-profit program that exists to connect transitioning active-duty military members with quality career training and employment opportunities within the building and construction industry.
At Iron Workers Local 378, we aim to provide our military veterans the assistance needed to bridge the gap between their shift into civilian life and our four-year Apprenticeship program, where providing stability, security and a prosperous career for the men and women who serve in the military is the least we can offer; the foundation of the American promise to its veterans.
We recognize the years of dedicated service, the hard work, and the abundance of skills that our military veterans possess, and we believe that Helmets to Hardhats is a great initiative in compensating and alleviating our veterans once they return home.
Interested military candidates should visit www.helmetstohardhats.org, and create an account. The next steps include building your resume, securing a copy of your DD Form 214-Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, and speaking with one of our Business Agents regarding entry into our Apprenticeship program. The great benefit in being a part of our Apprenticeship program here at Iron Workers Local 378 is that military candidates are able to gain invaluable training, on the job work experience and wages as an Iron Worker. This can all be done while using GI bill benefits to supplement incomes while you learn.
