MOST Training Program

BAGNY’s commitment to providing a highly trained workforce nationwide is demonstrated in our participation with the Mobilization, Optimization, Stabilization and Training (MOST) Fund. The Fund was established In June 1989 as a joint labor trust fund by the National Association of Construction Boilermaker Employers (NACBE) and Boilermakers union.

The mission is to provide boilermaker manpower in areas of need, to maintain a highly skilled work force, to maintain current skills and to train new skills and technology and to instruct and teach safe work habits, not only for boilermakers, but for all who are involved on a project.

The MOST program allows the boilermakers to be a mobile workforce, sending workers to areas where they are needed the most, while maintaining the high standards for quality workmanship through the nationally standardized training program.

The MOST Programs – Mobilization, Optimization, Stabilization and Training – are designed to increase the skill levels of all Boilermakers and provide value to the Owners and Contractors who employ them. Since its inception, MOST Programs have resulted in a 90% reduction in OSHA recordable injuries.
