*The welding program requires a refundable deposit and there are testing fees that are outside of the class
The center is a year round staffed location with classes of all types.
Members are housed and fed in the adjacent dormitory (image above).
Fall Training at the National Training Center
Training for BAC members continues this fall at the John J. Flynn BAC/IMI National Training Center.
In addition, NJ BAC members are always welcome at either of our local training centers. The centers are open weekdays during normal working hours and many Saturdays coinciding with the regular school year. If you need to polish a skill, learn new techniques or get that certification the training centers nationally and locally are here to help.
