Become An Apprentice

Metal Fabrication apprentices learn how to shape and fabricate metal. They learn to weld using TiG, MiG and arc welders, and cut, shape, assemble and fit metal in production and maintenance.  As the trade uses emerging technologies, strong numerical skills and problem solving abilities are an advantage for engineering apprentices.

Engineering apprenticeships with AGA usually around 4 years to complete and involve both on-the-job work experience (with a host employer) and trade school training (delivered at no cost by AGA at one of our training facilities).
