Overview - 2021/2022

The satisfaction of working hard, with your hands, and seeing the results of your labour daily is as good as it gets. As a sheet metal worker, one of the most valuable jobs in the skilled trades, you’ll learn the skills to get your career going and your hands working. At Fanshawe and during your apprenticeship, you’ll learn to work with punches and drill presses, sheers and brakes.

You’ll work with the latest laser or plasma-cutting equipment, under the guidance of professionals who will offer guidance and inside information about this in-demand field. When you graduate, you’ll know how to fabricate, assemble, install and repair sheet metal products such as heating, cooling and ventilation shafts, eavestroughs and sheet metal buildings.

You want to combine training with earning power, so consider an apprenticeship where you mix workplace-based training under the direction of experienced workers with shorter lengths of classroom or online training. You’ll find work with construction firms, heating and cooling companies and parts manufacturers. You’ll work with other tradespeople to build commercial, industrial and residential buildings or to customize equipment and products.

You need to be good with numbers, physically fit and comfortable working alone or as part of a team. You’ll leave the job site every day knowing you’re building a legacy.
