ITA Source: 'Boilermaker ' profile.
Boilermakers fabricate, construct, install, assemble, erect, demolish, repair and maintain a wide variety of vessels, tanks, towers, boilers, hoists and other structures, ancillary equipment and fixtures made of steel, other metals, fiberglass, and other materials. The broad scope of this trade includes the construction and maintenance activities performed in the field and in industrial and commercial plants.
The program combines technical and work-based training. It generally takes three to five years to complete.
The technical training is made up of three levels (450 hours total) and each level is five weeks (150 hours). Level 1 can also be met through completion of the Boilermaker Foundation Program (690 hours). 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.
