If any of these abilities come easily to them, they may find great success in the construction industry, and the Mechanical Insulators Union in particular.
There are so many construction projects currently underway and more on the horizon. The building trades need people with the skills the children in your life already have to work on these jobs. When they graduate from high school, the demand for talented people like them will be greater than ever.
How can the children in your life become a professional in one of the skilled trades? They must apply and be accepted into a Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (J.A.T.C.) Registered Apprenticeship Program. These programs typically require four or five years of education and training similar to college.
There is little chance that your kids will get bored during their career as an Insulator. They will have many opportunities to learn fascinating new skills and advance their career. One of the most significant benefits of becoming a member of the building trades is working with experienced journeymen and journeywomen in the field during your Registered Apprenticeship.
Here are just some of the career fields in Mechanical Insulators work:
Support for their Union Brothers and Sisters is vital to the Mechanical Insulators. Anyone in the Union and their Local is a potential resource for answering any questions. Not just their Training Instructors want your kids to succeed, but so do the other members of their Local.
Registered Apprenticeships are industry-vetted, approved and validated by the U.S. Department of Labor or a State Apprenticeship Agency. This means that programs are industry-reviewed and -approved to guarantee compliance with the industry standards and prepare Registered Apprentices for positions requiring specialized knowledge and expertise. These programs are also designed to look like communities where their members live and work. These programs follow strict hiring standards that ensure equality, inclusion and diversity.
Registered Apprentices in the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Union are paid for their time and effort. They start with generous pay, which climbs with each successive year of their Registered Apprenticeship Program. Any given day may provide something new because much of their training occurs in real-world settings.
Apprenticeship can be challenging, but it will pay off in the end. Your kids have plenty of career opportunities after their training and an impressive resume detailing relevant work experience and academic credentials.
