Hoisting & Portable

Hoisting and portable (H&P) is the construction side of the organization. Over the years, IUOE local unions throughout the U. S. and Canada have developed and implemented comprehensive training programs that are widely recognized as the best in a number of industries. Our aim has been and continues to be to provide highly skilled, safe, and productive heavy equipment operators and stationary/facilities engineers to the construction, pipeline, stationary and environmental industries.

Presently IUOE has more than 100 state-of-the-art training facilities and apprenticeship programs across Canada and the United States. The Operating Engineers have worked diligently over the years to ensure that IUOE members are among the best in the field.

Presently PEI does not have a training facility. Within this organization and the training facilities, training IUOE members has been a priority. We have built relationships over the years with other IUOE Locals who have facilities so that members of this local are readily accepted into the training facilities across Canada.
