1st Year Apprentice, Sheet Metal Workers Local #12
Brittany knew early on that a career in the skilled trades was for her. She just wasn’t sure what path she wanted to take. While attending a trade school for welding, Brittany took a class tour of the Sheet Metal Workers Joint Apprenticeship Training Center. That tour was the spark that led her to become a Sheet Metal Worker.
“I knew I didn’t want to weld as a career, but it was a good basis to get an understanding of what being a professional tradesperson was all about,” she said. “I never realized how involved sheet metal work could be. I found it really interesting and decided this is what I want to do.”
Brittany sees a clear career path, and long-term hopes to move into an apprentice coordinator, recruitment, and training position.
