Sheet Metal Workers mark out, cut, shape and join sheet metal using hand and power tools, or assemble and install sheet metal products such as those used in fitting out large commercial buildings with ducted temperature control systems.
An apprenticeship in Sheet Metal will set you up for a career in the Engineering Fabrication trade. There are typically two streams of specialisation for Sheet Metal apprentices to consider: First Class, who can go on to qualify as sheet metal pattern makers; and Second Class, who specialise in the operation of certain sheet metal working machinery.
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.
