2010 Apprenticeship Competition - Preparing tube ends before installing the tube replacment part.
From the early days of steamships and locomotives to the modern supercritical boilers, the Boilermakers continue to be a leader in apprenticeship training and journeyperson upgrading.

A Boilermaker apprenticeship ranges from 4800 hours to 6000 hours depending on the province of indentureship with 720 of those hours spent in a Community College for the in-school portion. Colleges follow a national common core curriculum which allows for ease of mobility for apprentices as well as consistency for in school training.

Providing highly skilled and qualified Boilermakers has and will continue to be a major focus of our organization by promoting lifelong learning opportunities for our members. Our local union training centers provide upgrading courses in all aspects of safety and other trade related courses, including welding, rigging and supervision.
