Eligibility

Apprenticeship Training

In order to become an apprentice, you must have attained the age of 18 at the date of admission. Apprentice classes are formed whenever the Trustees determine there is a need to do so. The Steamfitters’ Industry Training Center can advise you if a class is being formed. When a class is about to be formed, you may apply for apprenticeship training by completing an application form, which should be obtained from and returned to the Steamfitters’ Industry Training Center located at 48-03 32nd Place, Long Island City, New York 11101-2416.

In order to qualify for apprenticeship training, you must have a High School Diploma or GED, take an aptitude test which is administered by the New York State Department of Labor, and be interviewed and approved as an apprentice by an employer trustee and a union trustee or a committee designated by the trustees to interview apprenticeship candidates. The number of positions available is limited and varies from time to time.

Post-Apprenticeship Training

You are eligible to apply for post-apprenticeship training if you are a graduate apprentice or qualified journeyman steamfitter. You must be a qualified journeyman steamfitter or a graduate apprentice who has worked at the trade of steamfitting for employers who are obligated to contribute to the Steamfitters’ Industry Pension Fund, Supplemental Retirement Fund, Welfare Fund, Health Reimbursement Account Fund, Security Benefit Fund or Vacation Plan. You may apply by communicating with The Steamfitters’ Industry Training Center. Qualified journeymen are assigned to post-apprenticeship training in the order in which they apply.

The Educational Fund reserves the right to terminate the participation of any apprentice or journeyman in any Educational Fund program for any reason the Educational Fund deems appropriate.
