Home / North Baton Rouge Industrial Training Initiative
NBRITI is a collaborative effort comprised of diverse community, industrial, and educational partners throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area, all committed to one goal: to provide a sustainable process to recruit, train, and develop North Baton Rouge residents for successful careers with local industrial employers. The program will train for Millwrights, Welders, Pipe fitters and Electricians. Job placement is also available for those students who fit the Ready to Go! framework designed to empower the students to be accountable for their own successes.
EARN YOUR CAREER
We will only focus our career efforts for students that excel with our Ready To Go! standards: The Ready To Go!framework will monitor a student’s daily timeliness, safety, use of hand tools, use of PPE, housekeeping, and teamwork. This framework is designed to be a fair and easy process for the instructors and most importantly to empower the students to be accountable for their own success.
This is a 52 week program (two nights a week from 6 PM - 9 PM) that will train students in the welding trade. Trainees should be able to demonstrate welding safety, basic blueprint metallurgy and weld symbols, oxyfuel systems, cutting processes, SMAW-basic beads, SMAW-fillet welds, SMAW-v-groove bu/gouge welds. This course will incorporate AWS testing when applicable. Upon completion of training, trainees that have shown mastery of a welding skill set will have the opportunity to have their welds tested for X-ray certification.
This is a 52 week program (two nights a week from 6 PM - 9 PM) that will train students in the electrical trades. Trainees will be taught NCCER Electrical Level One and Level Two. Trainees will learn electrical safety, electrical theory, device boxes, hand bending, raceways and fittings, electrical construction drawings, electrical test equipment, electrical circuits, alternating current, motor theory, conduit bending, conductor installations, grounding and bonding, circuit breakers and fuses, and control systems and fundamental concepts. Those who successfully complete the course will receive credentials from NCCER in Electrical Level One and Level Two.
This is a 52 week course (two nights a week from 6 PM - 9 PM) that will train students in the pipefitting trades. Trainees will be taught NCCER Pipefitting Level One and Level Two. Trainees will learn pipefitting hand tools, oxyfuel cutting, motorized equipment, piping systems, drawing and detail sheets, identifying and installing valves, pipefitting trade math, threaded pipe fabrication, socket weld and butt weld pipe fabrication, rigging, aboveground and below ground pipe installation, hangers and supports, and testing piping systems and equipment. Those who successfully complete the course will receive credentials from NCCER in Pipefitting Level One and Level Two.
This is a 52 week course (two nights a week from 6 PM - 9 PM) that will train students in the electrical trades. Trainees will be taught NCCER Millwright Level One and Level Two. The Millwright trade includes work in metal and machinery of ever-increasing technology and precision. Millwrights install, align, and troubleshoot machinery in factories, power plants (particularly the precision machinery required in nuclear power plants), and other industrial sites. They install conveyor systems, connect machinery to power supplies and piping, direct hoisting and setting of machines, and adjust the moving and stationary parts of machines to certain specifications. Millwrights must be extremely skilled at mathematics and interpreting blueprints and specifications to set machines at perfect measurements, sometimes working with clearances no bigger than thousandths of an inch. Those who successfully complete the course will receive credentials from NCCER in Millwright Level One and Level Two.
