CINFAB has our own in-house apprentice program. It’s a 4-year program, which results in graduates becoming a Sheet Metal Journeyman. When an apprentice is hired and registered with the state as an apprentice, their program begins.
The program includes classroom time and on-the-job working hours. The classroom work typically runs from mid-September through mid-April.
Classes are held 2 evenings per week at the CINFAB office throughout the school year. Apprentices must attend class and maintain passing grades. The on-the-job hours start as soon as the apprentice is registered with the state.
All apprentices are required to fill out a form each month showing all working hours listed in the appropriate category. They must complete 8,000 hours, which is approximately 4 years of full-time employment. All apprentices can and will work in both the fabrication shop and in the field on job sites. Our classroom has a lab where they will learn real-life skills in the sheet metal industry.
Apprentices all start at a competitive rate and receive a raise after every 1,000 hours worked.
