BNAP rolls out new website

Apprentice applicants will find wealth of information

VISITORS TO THE new Boilermakers National Apprenticeship Program website — — will find a more user-friendly experience and far more information than was available previously, according to BNAP National Coordinator Marty Spencer. The site went live May 13.

Redesigning the Web presence was authorized by the BNAP Board of Trustees, which established a committee to work with Martin Public Relations on the project. The committee includes Chairman Larry Jansen, ARB; District 57 Business Manager Ed Vance; Mary Spencer; Great Lakes IVP and BNAP Secretary Larry McManamon Sr.; and BNAP Chairman Ken Wasilewski, Babcock & Wilcox.

A primary goal of the project was to provide all the information that a prospective apprentice applicant might need in order to understand the program requirements. The site contains maps, photographs, video clips and links to organizations throughout the industry network.

The site explains the application process and includes such information as locations, news and events, organizational structure, and program history. It describes what applicants can expect if they choose the career path to become a Boilermaker. It also stresses the expectations for applicants and the qualities they should possess.

Spencer noted that phase two of the project is currently in progress. It will include the addition of even more content as well as a pass-code-protected section for an instructor communication network that can be used for requests, announcements, and interaction.
