Learn About Skilled Trades


The name "boilermaker" originates from the craft of making, installing and repairing boilers, but that's not all that these tradesmen do.

  • Boilermakers produce steel fabrications from plates and sections, which means they may also install and repair closed vats and other large vessels that hold and process oil, chemicals, beer and hundreds of other products.
  • Boilermakers may work to install, repair and maintain air pollution equipment, blast furnaces, water treatment plants, smoke stacks, storage and process tanks, fireboxes or hydroelectric power generation turbines.
