Monterey Structural Steel Inc., a family owned and operated steel fabricator and erector located in Watsonville, Calif., was the 2019 recipient of the SEAA Training Grant. The grant provides funding to cover startup costs associated with establishing a new SEAA/NCCER training unit and assessment site. Monterey Structural Steel is SEAA’s second Training and Assessment site in the state of California.
“SEAA’s Craft Training program features exclusive benefits for members, which cuts costs and administrative requirements, while providing members access to custom ironworker curriculum and dozens of other crafts,” said Tom Underhill, Executive Director.
Funding for Craft Training Grants is provided by the SEAA Safety & Education Committee, which raises funds through raffle tickets for the Boom Lift Ball Drop, and the Education Fundraiser Golf Tournament, held each October. The most recent Ball Drop, sponsored by United Rentals and JLG, raised $2000. The pot is split with the raffle winner.
