Sister Shelby Caven, (first year apprentice) was in an a.t.v. accident on the 4th of July down on the Kenai Peninsula.  Her brother is very concerned that all of her friends and co-workers be informed of the celebration of life being held in her memory this Saturday, (the 12th) at 3:00.  The celebration will be held at Zero Lake parking lot near Houston.  He expressed how happy Shelby had been in pursuing her dreams as an Operating Engineer and plans to make an urn  from an excavator tooth provided by Bristol Construction, (she had been working for Bristol on the Point McKenzie Railway extension project).  Please pass on the information about the celebration of life to anyone that may like to attend.


This is a sad day, for we have lost a truly special member of our family.


Training Center


The Alaska Operating Engineers Employers Training Center is located at 5400 N. Cunningham Road, mile 3.5 Palmer Fishhook Road and occupies 163 acres in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley in Palmer, Alaska. We are recognized as one of the top training facilities in the state of Alaska.  

The Alaska Operating Engineers/Employers Training Trust prepares Alaskan workers with the skills necessary to meet the ever-changing needs of the construction and related industries.  The AOEETT is committed to providing the highest quality training opportunities to all our members and apprentices.  This training is an excellent resource to learn new skills, upgrade on existing skills, and remain current on required certifications.

The largest obstacle for training in Alaska is the winter season, because of the frozen ground. A 16,000 sq. ft. (80’ x 200’) indoor training arena was designed with the specific intent of training on machines and grade checking from November to April where previously, heavy equipment training was nearly halted due to frozen ground. This is the only indoor training arena in the state of Alaska and we are proud to be able to provide our members with this benefit.
