Sheet Metal Workers 24 – South Point


Today’s sheet metal and HVAC industry needs highly skilled and motivated workers. Our main source for developing such workers has been through apprenticeship program.

This program offers an ‘earn while you learn’ opportunity to launch a lifetime career. You will receive quality training and limitless opportunities to advance while earning a paycheck and health benefits.

Once accepted into the program an apprentice learns through classroom study (South Point or Columbus locations) and paid on-the-job training, working side by side with a skilled Journeyman. This allows you to gain both practical experience as well as the knowledge you need to progress through the program.

Accepting applications “most” Thursdays between 12:30 and 4:00 PM.  Call ahead to confirm the office is open (614) 471-3107. For more information go online at
