Program Curriculum

Once the service member is accepted into the program, sheet metal training will last seven weeks. Six broad categories of instruction are delivered: general sheet metal; welding; HVAC service; system test, adjust, balance; and building information modeling. The class is full time and will provide the equivalent of first-year apprenticeship training (224 hours).

Below is a sample training schedule for the program:
