Sheet Metal Workers’ apprentices and journeymen receive some of the most comprehensive training in an extensive fast-paced construction industry.

From raw sheet metal they measure, detail, draw, design, form, fit, fabricate, weld, solder, assemble, install, finish, repair, and maintain many types of metals.
