Training Center Facilities

Located in the hills west of San Ramon, California (north of the junction of Interstate Highways 680 and 580), the Training Center is the ideal environment for the “hands-on” training of Construction Craft Laborers.

In addition to numerous field training sites, this modern facility consists of a large common building containing a dining area, recreational facilities, lounge, and the Administrative Office. Adjoining the main building are three apartment-like complexes which can accommodate up to sixty-four trainees. Adjacent to the main building are classrooms and a corporation yard.

While attending training, a trainee may choose to stay at the facility or commute. “Live-in” trainees are provided a room which they share with three other trainees. Each person is also provided a locker for storage of their personal items.

Live-in trainees are provided three meals a day. Trainees who commute are provided breakfast and lunch. Special consideration has been given to the type of work the trainees perform while enrolled in the program and the menus are designed to be both nutritional and well-balanced. (As of May 1, 2010, the provision of living quarters and food services at the Training Center will be temporarily suspended until further notice).

Trainees provide their own work clothes, boots, and toilet articles. Free laundry facilities are available. Hard hats and other personal protective equipment are provided free of charge.

In a continuing effort to provide the trainee with a state-of-the art training facility which offers the most practical and efficient training available, the Training Center completed construction on its new 15,000 square-foot educational building which was dedicated on November 6, 1999.

On April 19, 2002, a dedication was held to rename the Northern California Laborers Training Center after Terence J. O’Sullivan. Terence J. O’Sullivan served as General Secretary-Treasurer Emeritus of the Laborers’ International Union of North America from 1968 through 1975. He was instrumental in establishing the first training program for the Laborers in the United States. This Training Center was first opened in 1966 in Santa Rosa, California. It was subsequently relocated to its present location in San Ramon, California. This facility is the foundation of the Laborers’ International Union’s widely recognized and highly regarded training network. Currently there are 78 Laborers training facilities across the United States and Canada. Each year these centers train over 86,000 Construction Craft Laborers.
