The Steel Erectors Association of America announces that CSE Inc., which provides erecting, rigging, crane, and industrial contracting services from its Madison Heights, Va., headquarters, was selected to receive the 2018 SEAA Craft Training Grant.
Designated for member companies who are newly implementing SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Training and Assessment programs, the grant covers initial setup, training for administrators, instructors, and coordinators, and custom training materials for Ironworker Levels 1-3 or similar curriculum.
As a previous recipient of SEAA’s Project of the Year award and Zero Accident and Million Miles awards from the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association, CSE puts quality, safety, and integrity at the core of its services.
“CSE jumped into the SEAA/NCCER program by partnering with Buckner Companies and Schulz Iron Works to utilize existing resources, while working with Adaptive Construction Solutions for assistance with training on-boarding. This is exactly what SEAA’s craft training program was designed to do—create a network of SEAA members willing to collaborate and share resources in order to expand the availability of a trained and qualified workforce,” said Tim Eldridge, President of Education Services Unlimited and SEAA’s Craft Training and Assessment Coordinator.
