About Us


We are very proud of our 5 year Sheet Metal and Service apprentice programs... Is one for you?!!

If what you want is a really good job, this is a golden opportunity.  The Sheet Metal Workers' Local 265 offers award winning apprentice training programs that annually produce some of the top trainees in the country.  The up-to-date classrooms and work training areas at our Carol Stream school are second to none.  Each instructor is carefully chosen and fully trained to make the best use of your time and talents.

In either of our programs, you will work with a respected, local sheet metal contractor and you will earn while you learn.  As your skills and proficiency increase, you'll become a more valuable employee and receive additional compensation each time you reach specified levels of training.

The majority of our students complete the training and go on to have productive careers in the construction or service industry.  No experience is necessary.  Just a willingness to work hard and do your best.

Our program is certified by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship.  It is an Affirmative Action Program, and an Equal Opportunity Program.

If you're ready for a challenge, and willing to work hard for a valuable opportunity, learn how to apply for our Apprenticeship program.
