It is our goal to provide training that will keep our UBC members at the top of their craft. Our apprentices are trained to meet the needs of our Union Contractors and to be the future leaders in our craft
The Southern Alaska Carpenters Training Center has provided training for UBC apprentices and journeymen members since 1936. SACTC has been registered with the Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training since 1955. The training that is provided enhances our members' ability to be safe, productive craftsmen.
SACTC is the training center for Carpenters Locals 1281 in Anchorage and 2247 in Juneau. At the Southern Alaska Carpenters Training Center we like to say, "Through Our Doors Pass the Best Trained Builders in the Nation". The Southern Alaska Carpenters Training Center (SACTC) provides quality training for carpenter apprentices and journeymen south of the 63rd parallel.
The employment and training of apprentices during their apprenticeship shall be without discrimination because of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex.
