Welcome to the homepage for the IUOE Local 9 Training Center

The Local No. 9 Apprenticeship has a 160 acre training site located east of Denver. There is a mechanics and welding shop, a classroom, and heavy equipment on site available for use in the training of all Local No. 9 members. This is paid for by a contract negotiated amount that is contributed to the Apprenticeship Fund, so there is no out-of-pocket cost to the members for the training. This site has classes and training for both Apprentices and Journeyman.  


 The Training site will be open Tuesday - Saturday to those who RSVP.  


 No Call in RSVP will be accepted. You must RSVP online to complete the COVID-19 questionnaire. You may not show up in person without completing the questionnaire online 24 hours in advance. Click here to RSVP

Journeymen must bring a paid to date UNION DUES receipt to present to the office for the verification of membership. Please reserve a piece of equipment at least 24 hours in advance. To reserve equipment, please use the online reservation form.

Training starts at 7:00 a.m. sharp if you are late, your machine will not be held for you, and reservation voided. On Saturdays, there is a mandatory safety meeting that starts at 7:00 am. If you miss the safety meeting and do not have your paid-to-date Dues Receipt, you will not be able to train at the Site that day.
