Pre-Employment Sheet Metal
Southern Alberta Institute of Technologywww.sait.ca
This 15-week pre-employment program comprises the first period of the corresponding apprentice program that SAIT currently offers in this trade. The program will train individuals to design, fabricate, assemble, install and repair sheet metals products in a wide variety of industries and settings. They will use many types of metals, such as black and galvanized steel, copper, brass, nickel and stainless steel, aluminum and tin plate. Some of the products include dust collecting and control systems, heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, metal cabinets, flashing, coping, troughing and roof drainage systems. They work from verbal instructions or blueprints, or design small jobs themselves. They make some products in a shop and install them at construction sites, but other products such as roofing and siding have to be measured and cut at the construction site. Sheet metal workers work indoors and outdoors in all types of weather. Considerable bending, reaching, working at heights or in cramped spaces may be required.
