ITA Source: 'Boilermaker ' profile.
Construction Boilermakers lay out, burn, shear, saw, cut, punch, drill, ream, bore, rap, rivet, caulk, boil, connect, fasten, weld, gouge, shape, fit, handle, and rig structural members, plates, and tubes in the fabrication, erection, repair, and maintenance of dust, air gas, steam, oil, water, or liquid tight containers, structures, and equipment.
The program combines technical and work-based training. It generally takes three years to complete.
The technical training is made up of three levels (450 hours total). Level 1 is met through completion of the Boilermaker Foundation Program. Levels 2 and 3 are each five weeks. This block of training is normally delivered through an ITA approved training institution. Sometimes it may also be met through approved training models (distance education, part-time) and/or a level challenge exam.
The work-based training totals 4950 hours. Based on a 30-hour work week this equals about 165 weeks of training.
