FAQS

They say there’s no such thing as a stupid question. They are wrong, as anyone who’s ever uttered the words, “What does this button do?” can tell you. The questions below are not stupid questions; they are FAQs. Just don’t ask what FAQs are. That would be a stupid question.

  • I live a long way from a training site; can I check in the night before my class?

    You betcha. Students can check in from 4 p.m. until midnight the evening prior to their class at the Kingston and Elma (Satsop) training sites. Dinner is served at the Kingston site on Sunday nights from 5 to 5:30 p.m. The Pasco, Spokane and West Jordan, Utah, sites are not live-in facilities.

  • Will I get travel reimbursement?

    Yep, upon successful completion of a class. The rate is based on one round trip, and is determined by the distance from the student’s local union hall to the training site.

  • What if I can’t attend a class I have been scheduled for?

    You will be in big, big trouble. Kidding. If for any reason you are unable to attend a class, please call the training program as soon as possible. For Kingston, call 1-800-240-9112; for Utah, call 801-280-7195.

  • How long are classes?

    Here comes the answer everyone loves… it depends. Some classes run for as long as two weeks, and some are one day in length. Usually classes are eight hours per day, Monday through Friday.

  • When do classes start?

    For classes at the training sites that are one day or longer, check-in time is between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. Classes start promptly at 8 a.m.

  • How do I check in?

    Check-in time is usually 7:30 to 7:45 a.m. the morning of class. If a student is rooming at the site, it’s 4 p.m. to midnight the night before class. Check-in is located at the main office building. Students will fill out class registration paperwork and receive towels and a room key, if necessary. Jammies are your responsibility. Don’t forget to brush your teeth.

  • What should I bring with me to training?

    Work clothes, work boots, gloves and rain gear are required. Students are responsible for bringing their own personal grooming items and laundry soap, if needed. There is an on-site laundry facility for students’ use.

    The training program will notify students of any specific clothing and/or equipment needs. Bed linens and bath and hand towels are provided. The school also furnishes necessary tools, materials and books.

  • Where will I sleep?

    If class is more than a day in length, a room will be provided. Depending on availability, you may share a room with another student. Two rooms share one bathroom. Separate facilities are provided for women.

  • Are meals provided?

    Yes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided to students attending class. Breakfast is from 7 to 7:30 a.m. Lunch is served at noon. Dinner is from 5 to 5:30 p.m.

  • What is there to do in the evenings after class?

    The Kingston training site offers a TV lounge and board games for students to use after class hours. In addition, beaches, hiking trails, a movie theatre, shopping and other outdoor activities are located nearby.

  • I am enrolled in a two-week class; can I stay at the training site over the weekend?

    Students enrolled in two-week classes can receive housing and meals on the weekend. Students should inform their instructor when they arrive if these arrangements need to be made.

  • What are in-local classes?

    In-local classes are given by NWLETT instructors at the local union hall or at an employer’s site. In-local classes are generally refresher courses and take place in the evening hours. For example, an eight-hour flagging class could take place from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. over two evenings.

  • How do I attend in-local classes?

    Sign up for in-local classes at your local union hall. If you wish to take an in-local class offered by another local union hall, ask your business agent to call the hall offering the class and find out if there is room in the class for you to attend.
