Ironworkers Apprenticeship

MHCC partners with union ironworkers and employers to sponsor a four-year apprenticeship program. Training occurs in the classroom and on the job site. Ironworker apprentices attend a four-week daytime training session each year of their apprenticeship. Classes are often held during the winter months. Apprentices start at 65% of journey-level wage. Pay rates increase about every six months as an apprentice's work skills expand! 

Your future as an Ironworker 

Ironworkers build the structural framework for high-rise buildings, bridges, power plants, and towers. They also place reinforcing steel in concrete forms for roadways, foundations, and structures. Ironworkers also erect aluminum fascia on high-rise window walls so agility and comfort working off the ground are a must! 

Want to learn more about how you can become an ironworker? We’re happy to help. Please email MHCC Apprenticeship Advisor Howard Mitchell.
