If all or any of these skills come naturally to you, you could have a very successful future in the building and construction trades, especially with the Mechanical Insulators Union.
There is so much construction work across America, and the building trades are looking for new members with the same natural skills you already have. When you graduate from high school, the demand for talented people like you will be greater than ever.
How do you become a Mechanical Insulator? Our Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (J.A.T.C.) apprenticeship uses a highly successful training program, typically requiring four or five years of education and training — like college. Here are just some of the career fields where Mechanical Insulators work:
There are many opportunities to learn fascinating new skills and advance in your career, thanks to your education continuing after your apprenticeship. One of the most significant benefits of taking this step and joining the Insulators Union is having someone mentor and teach you the ropes while you continue working.
Our Union, like others, cares about its members, and support for our Brothers and Sisters is a top priority. Any member in your Local Union and other Union members can be great peer and mentor to help you navigate and succeed in your new career.
All Registered Apprentices in the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers industry are paid for their time and effort. You will start with great pay, which increases with each successive year of your Registered Apprenticeship Program. Any given day may provide something new because much of your training occurs in real-world settings.
Apprenticeships can be challenging at times but also rewarding and fun. When you complete your training and other opportunities to advance your skills, you will have many career choices.
