About Us > Who We Are

We are the builders of a safer, more skilled construction workforce.

LIUNA Training and Education Fund is the training arm for the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), offering the best adult education for the construction workforce. As one of three LIUNA Trust Funds – along with the Laborers' Health and Safety Fund of North America (LHSFNA) and the Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (LECET) – we are part of a vital labor-management infrastructure.

LIUNA Training creates the courses, trains the trainers, and offers support for 70 affiliated training centers located throughout the United States and Canada. By opening the door to opportunity, we help apprentices and journey workers improve and add to their skills, advance their careers and gain a competitive advantage in a tough marketplace. And we provide employers with an invaluable resource: a highly-trained workforce that helps them succeed.

Each year, roughly 140,000 LIUNA members attend our training in building construction; heavy and highway construction; construction supervision; environmental remediation, demolition, rehabilitation and restoration. We continually update our curricula to reflect evolving needs, most recently adding courses on weatherization and green construction.

What sets us apart?

Independent accreditation. That means our graduates are guaranteed to have the rigorous hands-on training needed to get the job done right. Because ultimately, the greatest value of our training lies in the end product: quality construction safely and expertly completed by skilled craft workers.
