How do I become a Union Sheet Metal Worker?

To become a journeyman sheet metal worker, you have to first become an apprentice sheet metal worker. As an apprentice, you will be enrolled in a four year program, with a starting wage of 45% of the journeyman wage scale. Each year, as you progress through your apprenticeship and become more skilled at the trade, you will receive a 5% wage increase.

Each year of your apprenticeship, you will be required to attend five weeks of day-time training (one week every seven weeks). While in training, you can collect unemployment compensation (if eligible) and you will receive college credit from CCAC (Community College of Allegheny County).
