The Brotherhood’s construction divers now have opportunities for more work, thanks to the launch of the UBC’s International Diver Traveler Referral Program (TRP).
The web-based portal provides an easy way for divers to make their availability and skill certifications known— and for distant UBC locals to quickly locate and deploy divers to fit the needs of specific work sites.
“Traditionally, our divers have always been willing to travel,” said UBC Representative Bob Laufenberg. “For example, in colder months, divers from the north will help on jobs that come up in the south. This portal makes it easier for both the divers and the Union to place them on jobs. The system helps our members and our industry partners to efficiently find each other — and get the job done at the highest level,” Laufenberg said.
The referral program uses the Carpenter International Training Fund’s (CITF) TRAIN system, where divers list their skills and specialties as well as their available travel schedules and desired locations.
In order to register, divers must have all of their diver certifications and qualifications entered into the UBC TRAIN System. This is done at the diver’s home regional training center. Divers must also be willing to be drug tested and have a criminal background check. UBC local representatives then log into the system to find the divers that suit particular assignments in their areas.
Certified divers who are willing to travel should register with this system and have their information available to dispatchers across the United States.
