Boilermakers Apprentice Program
Welding, burning, heavy and high rigging, and layout work are the most important skills a Boilermaker apprentice learns. Members work primarily in plants that are considered heavy industry-steel mills, power generation plants for utilities, chemical plants, refineries, and mills.
These plants can pose dangerous working conditions, so safety training is constantly taught and reviewed by the Union, the contractor, and the owner. This alliance has proved very successful in minimizing lost time accidents.
Boilermakers #374 started their apprenticeship program in 1968 and it has grown to over 250 apprentices currently enrolled in the four-year program. Apprentices must complete a minimum of 640 hours of in-class and shop training and 6,000 job site hours.
The Boilermakers are dedicated to providing expertise to
companies and owners. Training centers are located in Dale and Hammond, IN.
