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 upgrade training. 




CJAT will be CLOSED 5/23/2020 in observance of the Holiday weekend. Please be safe and have fun.

ATTENTION: UPDATE!!! In response to the COVID -19 ever changing dynamic and guidelines the Training Site is making the following temporary change

The Training site will be open, but only to the first 4 who sign up using the online reservation form. Priority will be given to current apprentices who are required to get their training hours in. No Call in RSVPs will be accepted. You must RSVP on line to complete the COVID-19 questionnaire. You may not show up in person without completing the questionnaire online 24 hours in advance and receiving an approval email in return

Additionally, if you are attending the site for Training for the first time, please contact the training site at least 48-24 hours before attending training to reserve equipment. 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. You are expected to remain at the training site for the full day.
