Become an Apprentice

Sheet Metal Institute

understanding the application process


If you are interested in becoming an apprentice through the Sheet Metal Institute, you need to have a good understanding of the application process. Successful entry into one of our programs depends highly on your overall score in the application process.

For program information and requirements, interested applicants should review the Application Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page and the Application Packet. We have went to great lengths to clearly describe our programs, and it is imperative that you look through the provided information to fully understand all the requirements that you must meet to apply to our programs.  The Application packet is a downloadable pdf packet that walks you through the entire application process with check lists, locations, times and dates.  It should answer all your questions about the application process.  

The Sheet Metal Institute currently offers three apprenticeship programs: Sheet Metal Worker, Sheet Metal Service Technician and Residential Sheet Metal Worker. We will only accept applications during our stated times.

The application process is a two-step process:

  • Fill out and turn in the application with all supporting documentation
  • Oral Interview 

The applicant will be scheduled for an oral interview the month following the application for those who meet the minimum requirements .

Applications are available on our web site, but must be turned in at one of our application locations.  All required documentation must be attached to the application at the time it is turned in. Once you have filled out and turned in your application it will go through a review process to determine if you meet the minimum requirements and our staff will notify you by email when you will be scheduled for your oral interview.
