Our Apprenticeship Program was established to promote efficient and high quality Field Construction by skilled craftsmen in the Boilermaker trade. The program provides an opportunity for a person to work through self-studies and on-the-job training, while participating in classroom instruction at Local Training Centers throughout the Northeast region of the United States.
Boilermaker work demands a high degree of technical skill and knowledge, a dedication to excellence, a willingness to study and complete on-the-job-training, and an ability to travel from job site to job site to maintain employment.
Today’s field construction boilermaker apprentice is involved in more than just the construction and repair of boilers. Apprentices are a vital part of construction project teams that erect and repair pressure vessels, air pollution equipment, blast furnaces, water treatment plants, storage and process tanks, stacks and liners. An apprentice could be involved in the installation of a giant superheater section in a large utility boiler, the erection of a 750,000-gallon water storage tank, the placement of a nuclear power plant reactor dome, or the construction of components on a hydroelectric power station.
