The Apprenticeship Program emphasizes on-the-job and classroom instruction, as well as the use of textbooks and other course materials giving participants a thorough knowledge of the trade.

As an apprentice, you will be employed by an insulation contractor.  The contractor will pay you appropriate wage and oversee your training on the job-site.

Throughout your apprenticeship, you will work side by side with experienced journeyman who understands the practical applications of knowledge and theory.

As you progress through each year of the program, the task assigned will become more complicated and you will require less supervision.  Your sense of pride, independence and self-confidence will grow as you accomplish increasingly difficult task with less assistance and instruction.  Your earnings will be adjusted upward each year to reflect your advancing skills and increased knowledge of the trade.

When not on a job-site, you will attend classes taught by highly qualified instructors chosen for their extensive knowledge and expertise.

Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you will be required to take an examination to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.  Passage of this exam is necessary to obtain journeyman status.

Our training program is four years based on related instruction and on the job training. Our program is recognized thru the state of Wisconsin as the leaders in Mechanical Insulation industry. Apprentices after completion are given a journeyman Certificate and are capable of working anywhere in the United States and Canada.
