Brian Murphy is the 393 Pipe Trades Training Center Coordinator. He’s led the efforts to create a hybrid learning model, bringing apprentices both online classes and Covid-safe in-person labs.
“The pandemic has forced the Training Center to modernize is ways we only dreamed of before,” said Brian. “It was a steep learning curve for
both the apprentices and the instructors to move courses online. Now we wonder, “How did we ever do this before without an online component?”
“Hybrid in-person and online learning is here to stay, but there are some things you have to do in person. We’ve opened up our labs, and we now have 100 students on any given night.
