'Boilermaking' is a metal fabrication trade with a long history, often considered the modern day equivalent of the industrial blacksmith. As a Boilermaker you are tasked with crafting a variety of metals to repair or produce ships, storage tanks, boilers, pipelines and other containers that have to withstand or enclose pressure systems.
As a Boilermaker Apprentice you will find yourself working in a variety of environments depending on your specialisation and your host employer. Boilermakers often have the opportunity to specialise as either a Boilermaker Welder or Boilermaker Marker Off, focusing on specific stages of the metal fabrication process. This allows you the opportunity to work with some exciting metals across a broad cross-section of industrial, mining and manufacturing industries.
This trade requires a four-year apprenticeship. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
