Cost & Wages of an Ironworker


There is no cost for tuition. Books must be purchased according to what class you are taking. The cost of books vary in prices from $25.00 - $77.00.

You must furnish your own personal Iron working tools as needed. Some of the specialty tools of our trade can be bought here at our Union Hall for Ironworkers Local No.808.

Apprentices will be required to attend school at the union hall twice a year for 2 weeks blocks:
Monday through Friday 7 am to 5 pm.  
There is a 1000 hour probationary period

Credit hours may be given for related experience and trade related certifications with documented proof, so it is possible to start the program with less class required hours and at a higher pay rate.  There will be an increase in wages of 5% for every 1000 of documented job related work hours. Completion of some of the program classes will result in college credits towards trade related courses.
