The JATCs are a labor-management trust fund that administers the Union Sheet Metal Industry’s world-class, certified and accredited Apprenticeship and Journeyman upgrade-training programs.
Member training is conducted in state-of-the-art Sheet Metal Training Centers, where apprentices learn the techniques they will need to be successful in the industry with the most up-to-date skills and knowledge available. This is also the place where journeymen continue their education and upgrade skills.
