Our Fairbanks campus sits on 3 acres and has three state of the art training facilities on the site. A new two story training school opened in May 2015 and offers over 15,000 square feet of training space. This building includes three training classrooms, community study areas, a student tool room, administrative offices and a large shop with state of the art technology throughout the building. There is a large stand-alone shop building that offers over 6000 square feet of training space along with a mezzanine and plenty of space for equipment storage. The second outbuilding consists of a large classroom, office space, storage and large shop area where many skills based training take place. This building is over 5600 square feet.
There is a total of 27,274 square feet of training space on the Fairbanks campus, allowing the Alaska Laborers to participate in cutting edge training for all types of construction skills. In addition to the large training spaces provided in the buildings, there is a large yard that allows the space needed to deliver the construction training to ensure the workforce is highly trained and skilled for all construction jobs. The Fairbanks school is outfitted with all the equipment needed to deliver quality training including several hard rock drills, a boom truck for hoisting and rigging, a loader, a few aerial lifts, pipe and mechanical insulation equipment, a full set up of scaffolding, and many other types of construction training equipment.

The Alaska Laborers would like to thank everyone who has been a part of the important visioning of the Alaska Laborers Training School. This school is a result of all those who supported, designed, and constructed this impressive facility. Although there is much left to do, the next generation of training excellence has begun. The results of the expanded level of training will be obvious as the Alaskan Laborers’ workforce is put into action.
