As a Technician’s Apprentice, students learn the basics of roofing, carpentry, and job site safety in a classroom environment with the addition of some active-site opportunities.
After successful completion of the Technician Apprenticeship, students progress to Mechanic. Training involves more in-depth understanding of individual products/roofing systems and learning skills and techniques, including laying insulation, roofing membrane, and decking installation.
Mechanic II Apprentices move on to active job sites where they are trained in working with hand and power tools, insulation, primer and adhesive, seaming, welding equipment, flashing, and more.
