Your future as a sheet metal worker 

Sheet metal workers fabricate and install fittings and ductwork used in residential and commercial buildings and industrial heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. They set up and operate shears, press brakes, hand brakes, bending rolls, welding machines, and other equipment. With these, they cut, form, and attach metal for roofing and stainless-steel projects for restaurants, kitchens, and hospitals. They prepare ship drawings and field drawings manually and with computer programs. Computer skills are becoming increasingly important for controlling industrial equipment.
