IATSE Local 891 is committed to assisting members to maintain and improve their skills, safety, and knowledge of applicable rules and regulations, through an extensive training program.
Please check back for the 2017 Departmental Training Booklet in early 2017.
Effective May 21, 2015: Only active members in good standing who have worked a minimum of 30 days in the preceding three years (either on IATSE Local 891 signatory productions and/or by providing member services work for Local 891) qualify for training funds, unless they have been unable to meet the 30 day requirement as a result of absences due to disability, parental, political or educational leave. Members who have made themselves available to work through dispatch, but who have not received a call through dispatch, may access union training funds. This is based on a motion made and passed at the General Membership meeting on April 19, 2015.
The 30 day requirement does not apply to the following IATSE Local 891 courses, or safety related courses:
To enroll and pay for a course not being organized by IATSE Local 891, book the course directly with the college or institution and pay the fees to them.
Original receipts will be returned with the reimbursement cheque.
