The MOST Project Management Program trains qualified Boilermakers on how to manage projects in a business-like manner, make decisions that positively impact project goals and provide an overall benefit to the contractor, union and owner community. This focus on goal setting also creates profitability improvements that many contractors and owners receive. 

The next MOST Project Management Program class is scheduled for the week of January 11, 2015. Click here to see class details and obtain an application form. Deadline for application submission is Friday, November 7, 2014.

A message from the MOST Program - Effective July 1, 2014 MOST will no longer conduct annual drug testing: Through action taken by the MOST Trustees’, changes have been adopted in the MOST Drug Screening Policy and Procedures, which applicants for referral should familiarize themselves with. In particular, the Trustees have adopted the following language found in Section 4 of the policy:

“All individuals who were MOST certified drug free at any time from and including February 1, 2013 to the present shall remain MOST certified drug free until such time as that individual test positive under a MOST approved test.”

However, during this bitter cold winter some customers came to regret that decision.
