Our Commitment to Excellence
Operating Engineers Local 4’s Training Center prepares apprentices and journey members with the tools to excel in hoisting, excavation, and maintenance across New England’s top markets. Our programs, rooted in our commitment to safety, productivity, and continuing education, make Local 4’s workforce the chosen partner for dozens of contractors for over 100 years.
Founded in 1963, the Local 4 Training Center was established to ensure quality in our industry and provide top-notch educational opportunities to both apprentices and journey members. Today we proudly provide classroom and skills training at two locations. In Canton, we offer instruction and practice on site work equipment such as excavators, bulldozers, gradalls, and loaders. In Medway, we offer crane training, NCCCO testing, and CDL training and testing.
