For the past 21 years, the Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund (IIIATF) has held annual competitions that tests the skills and knowledge of Registered Apprentices.
Every Local, Regional and Conference contest is different, and the path to the final Master Apprentice Competition (MAC) can vary, but every year, 10 competitors come together to compete against each other on a written test and an unknown mockup designed to put their skills and knowledge of Mechanical Insulation to the test.
In recent years this mockup has been inspired by the host city attractions. For 2022, the host city was Hershey, Pa, and the mockup had a chocolate factory theme, complete with a Hershey Kiss Pipe Topper.
Who knows what next year’s competition will have in store? We are looking forward to meeting the competitors for 2023 in July in Houston.
