Three More Companies Join SEAA Training Network

March 27, 2019 - Three more companies have joined the nationwide network of SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Training Units and Assessment Sites. They are ASPE-South of North Carolina, Trivent Safety Consultants of Colorado, and Monterey Structural Steel of California.

In addition, Deem Structural of Texas and CSE of Virginia, which joined the network in late 2018, have completed all assessments and audits.

ASPE-South is a division of American Steel & Precast Erectors. The family owned business was founded in 1982 and is now run by second-generation leaders. ASPE-South will offer ironworker training and assessments.

Trivent Safety Consultants offers OSHA compliance expertise to help companies develop, implement, and maintain safety and health programs. Featuring instructor-led onsite training, the company will offer mobile crane operator certifications in addition to SEAA’s U.S. Department of Labor-approved Ironworker Apprenticeship program and assessments.

“We deliver the SEAA’s DOL-approved Ironworker Apprenticeship program using the SEAA/NCCER curriculum to several steel erection companies in the Denver area,” says Bryan McClure, owner of Trivent Safety Consulting. “Without SEAA and NCCER’s backing, these tradesmen would not have a clear pathway to obtaining a nationally recognized journeyman status in their chosen profession.”

Monterey Structural Steel of Watsonville, California, a fabricator of structural steel, miscellaneous metals, stairs, and ornamental iron, will use the ironworker training and assessment program.

“SEAA’s craft training program has been a phenomenal success — representing a new revenue stream for the association, a key attraction for new members, and most importantly, an affordable way for member companies to deliver consistent training and assessment of worker qualifications,” says Dave Schulz, president of SEAA.
