HVAC Sheet Metal Apprenticeship Program

Invest in Your Company's Future! 

ACTA's 4-Year Apprenticeship Program teaches apprentices how to install and fabricate HVAC sheet metal fittings, read blueprints, and supervise jobs once they become journeymen. Provide your company with a skilled workforce through this Apprenticeship Program.

Are you looking to enhance your company's safety, productivity, or employee confidence? This program addresses all three aspects by providing quality training to individuals. Our objective is to equip individuals with the necessary knowledge to benefit both themselves and their employers. Whether they are beginners or experienced professionals, we offer job-related classroom instruction to prepare them for hands-on training. Contractors are then responsible for providing on-the-job training.


Enroll an Employee or Get an Apprentice Dispatched

With our apprenticeship program, you have two options to choose from:

  • Enroll your existing employees into the apprenticeship program and they will work exclusively for your company while completing the 4-year program.
  • If you need an apprentice but don't have an employee to enroll, as an ACTA member, you can request an apprentice to be assigned to your company for a specific jobThe apprentice will work for your company for the duration of the job. When the work is completed, the apprentice will return to ACTA and then be assigned to the next contractor with available work.


How It Works

Our apprenticeship training program follows a 34-week structure similar to a traditional school year. Apprentices are required to attend a 2-hour online evening class each week and complete their homework assignment outside of class instruction. During the summer months from May to August, students will have a break from classroom sessions.

ACTA is the apprenticeship for you!
We have been training apprentices in California since 1972 and have recently expanded to South Carolina. For questions about the condensed apprenticeship or if you are interested in enrolling an apprentice, email jmojica@actrade.ac.
