Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership WRTP is an IAM represented non-profit membership organization that is dedicated to family-sustaining jobs in our area. 

We develop programs that help our members expand employment and advancement opportunities, upgrade the skills of their current employees, and recruit and retain qualified job candidates. 

Our programs prepare low-income, unemployed, and young workers for careers in a wide range of targeted industries.


William W. Winpisinger Education & Technology Center As we enter the new century, the only way to keep up with change is with education. The William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center is the IAM's most visible sign of our commitment to provide a world class educational facility to train future IAM leaders.


The Winpisinger Center teaches what it is to be a trade unionist. By studying labor history and the role unions play in our society, students learn that unions are more than service organizations. We are part of a larger movement toward economic and social justice with dignity on the job.
