Top 5 Trainings Your Contractor Needs

  1. TRSC BOP Three Rivers Safety Council – Basic Orientation Plus
  2. OSHA 30
  3. MCAA Field Leaders Conference
  4. ASME Bolting
  5. NITC Med Gas


We’ve put these trainings in our Top 5 simply because they are industry standard! You shouldn’t be hiring any contractor that hasn’t gone through these specific trainings and continued education.


All of our field employees (pipe fitters and sheet metal workers) go through a 2-day orientation to ensure they are prepared for each worksite. This training is at a minimum; additional training is performed depending on the specific site and scope of work.


All field construction employees also attend the TRSC BOP Three Rivers Safety Council – Basic Orientation Plus. This is a one-day course developed by the ARSC that works with a contractor’s safety program to meet OSHA requirements.


At our HQ, we continue in-house training with an additional 8-hour training day including five different sessions of interactive classroom training and hands-on sessions.


Once our employees get to the job site, additional training is implemented on site-specific topics and equipment. This training can include emergency action plans, site specific hazards, and specific hands-on training for specialty equipment (aerial lifts, material handlers, etc).


We follow industry standards as set by OSHA, ASME, ANSI and other known organizations.



Many of our employees completed OSHA 30, as well as certifications for welding, rigging & signaling, OSHA/ASME bolting practices, NITC Med Gas, and more!


Our employees also attend trainings that have been coordinated by member organizations that DePue belongs to (MCAA, AWS, Local 597, TRMA, CSC, etc.).


These classes can range from construction-theory practices to hands-on technical specialty qualifications.


We find continued education a necessity to ensure DePue can provide qualified, certified mechanics to our family of clients with diverse standards and needs.

Next time you’re looking to hire a contractor for your new project, ask them about their commitment to continued education and training.
