Highly Trained Workforce

Our Highly Trained Workforce is Second to None!

Coast-to-coast, the union insulation industry specializes in providing customers with the highest-skilled and best-trained workers in the industry. This is made possible because we provide our apprentices and journeymen with the most current and state-of-the-art training available.

Our Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund, finances the training department for the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Union and its signatory contractors.

These efforts work in conjunction with the insulation industry’s Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (J.A.T.C.) labor-management group, which works to provide the best-trained insulation workers with the skills necessary to meet industry needs now and in the future.
