Training

The NABET-CWA Local 11 Training Committee
The NABET-CWA Local 11 Training Committee was created in 1999 in order to explore means of setting up and obtaining funds for a comprehensive training program for our members. We’ve attended several educational and grant application workshops and made key contacts that have given us a great deal of information about the endless educational possibilities and grant money available.
