We ensure skill, safety & experience.
Given the enormous power of construction equipment in use today and the loads they transport, it is critical to public safety that operating engineers have the best training and the most experience.

Operating Engineers of Local 825 have two outstanding training facilities in Dayton, N.J. and Wawayanda (New Hampton), N.Y. These members have access to training on virtually every topic that heavy equipment operators need to stay on the cutting edge.

Full-time, on-location instructors provide everything from heavy equipment operator training, training in emergency response, hazardous waste operations and OSHA requirements to keep contractors supplied year-round with safe, skilled, and efficient operators.
