Work performed by a Boilermaker requires high technical skill and a dedication to top performance.

Field construction work is, by nature, an outside job which means exposure to all types of weather conditions, heat, and cold.

A major portion of the Boilermaker’s work is performed at great heights, often from 200 to 1,000 feet above the ground.

Field construction is contract work – when the contract is completed, your job is ended. You may have to travel outside of the Local Lodge and live away from home for long periods of time.

The majority of work involves confined space access, requiring safe work procedures for access, egress, escape, and rescue.

The size of materials, tools, and equipment handled by Boilermakers requires excellent physical strength and stamina.

Applicants must all meet the following minimum qualifications:

Age — All applicants must be at least 18 years of age. Applicants are required to submit reliable proof of age.

Education — Applicants must be high school graduates or provide proof of equivalent education attainment, such as successful completion of GED. Each applicant must submit a copy of their high school transcript or official report of GED test results if these documents will verify graduation.

Applicants entering this program are selected first on the basis of welding qualifications, and then on the basis of random selection, as set forth in the approved standards and selection procedures of the National Joint Apprenticeship Committee for the trade.

Applications remain active for two years. If applicants haven’t been indentured within the two-year period they must re-apply.
