Are you ironworker material?

If you possess the following qualities and are looking for a career that will maximize your potential, you just might have what it takes to become an ironworker.

  • Do you like to be able to see the work you've done at the end of the day?
  • Do you take pride in providing quality work that meets demanding standards?
  • Do you like to work as part of a team?
  • Do you like to work outdoors?
  • Are you willing to do physically demanding work that requires you to use your mind too?
  • Would you like to earn a respectable wage while going to school to learn new skills and perhaps even a college degree?
  • Are you interested in a career rather than "just a job?"
  • Do you enjoy new challenges?

If you're nodding your head "yes" to the questions above, we encourage you to contact your local iron workers union about apprenticeship training programs in your area. An apprenticeship program will provide a way to achieve the success you're looking for. To find a local union in your area, click here. Want to know more about what it means to be an apprentice?

Requirements to Enter an Ironworkers Apprenticeship Program:

  • Minimum age of 18 years.
  • High school diploma, G.E.D., or equivalent as specified by the local training committee.
  • Good physical condition - The materials used for ironworking are heavy and bulky so above average physical strength is necessary.
  • Agility and a good sense of balance are also required.
  • Drug and alcohol free.
  • Must meet requirements as set out in applicable citizenship laws.

An Important Note

It is important to mention that an ironworker must be willing to work in high places, have a good sense of balance, and be alert to potential danger to themselves and others. However, the apprenticeship program includes safety training with OSHA Authorized Construction Trainers so that the danger is minimized.
