June marks the six-month anniversary, since John Perkowski, ISC’s Field Director and Safety Supervisor, accepted a position with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Carpenters International Training Center (ITC) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As an instructor trainee for ITC’s Department of Education & Training, John facilitates a three-day course, six weekends throughout the year, that focuses on carpenter journeyman leadership. The goal of the course is to teach union carpenters how to become leaders and mentors on the job site. “You do not have to hold a position of power to be a leader,” says John.

John looks forward to completing his time as an instructor trainee and becoming a qualified instructor in the upcoming year.
