Boilermaker Apprenticeship
Apprenticeship applications are available the first Wednesday, of each
month, at Local 92.  To apply, you must be 18 years of age, and have a high
school diploma or G.E.D. Local 92 Journeymen take pride in training and
mentoring new Boilermakers to help them obtain the skills necessary to
become the future of our organization.

From the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers website:
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.
Boilermaker National Apprenticeship Program (BNAP)
Apprentices enrolled in the program receive training as required.  All skills of the
Boilermaker craft are taught during your enrollment in the program.  Apprentices
assigned to attend training spend 21 days at the area training facility, with
transportation, room, and per diem paid by your area's Joint Apprenticeship Committee
(JAC).

Apprentices are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner both in the
classroom and in the community.  The use of drugs or alcohol, horseplay, or sexual
harassment will not be tolerated.  Absenteeism or tardiness will not be tolerated.  If an
apprentice fails to report for class, or reports late, the area committee may terminate that
Apprentice from the program.  An Apprentice's behavior in public reflects not only on the
individual, but on the union and the employer, as well.

Employers are responsible for providing on-the-job training.  Apprentices may be
assigned to an individual who will assist in job orientation at the job site.  When
possible, one-on-one assignments are recommended.  Every effort is made to rotate
Apprentices into different work assignments on the job, to provide hands-on experience
with a wide range of Boilermaker skills.  Instructional On-The-Job Training (OJT)
modules must be completed on the job, if the tasks are available.  Each OJT module
focuses on a fundamental Boilermaker skill.  Apprentices must complete the required
number of modules during the term of Apprenticeship.  However, the module sequence
may vary depending upon the variety of work available.
