Carpenters' Training Director Joins WGN's Mr. Fix-It

Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters’ Training Director Vince Sticca joined WGN Radio720’s Lou Manfredini, aka, Mr. Fix-It, on Sat., Sept. 29, to discuss the Carpenters’ training program and building a career as a union carpenter.

“I visited your facility several months ago and to say that I was impressed would be an understatement,” said Manfredini. “For many young people that are looking to get into some lasting career that you can raise a family and be proud of what you do every day, something like joining the Carpenters union and getting that kind training is important.”

To learn more about the Carpenters’ Training Program visit or call 847-640-7373. In addition, in coordination with the Department of Labor’s National Apprenticeship Week, the Carpenter Training Center will be hosting its annual Apprenticeship Open House events on consecutive evenings, Nov. 14 and Nov. 15, 2018. The event will start at 5:30 p.m. with tours of the facility and the main presentation—which will cover what it takes to become a carpenter, information on how to get into the program, and a question & answer period—begins at 6:30 p.m.
