Insulators Local 50 specializes in providing our signatory contractors with the highest-skilled and best-trained workers in the industry, a fact that was clearly evident at the 2013 Heat and Frost Insulators Central States Master Apprenticeship Competition earlier this month.
Held May 3rd and 4th at the Dayton Holiday Inn, the two-day competition tested the written and hands-on skills of the talented apprentices trained in our 3,000 square foot, state-of-the-art training facility in Dayton, Ohio.
Following a two-hour written test on Friday and seven hours of hands-on competition on Saturday, the apprentices and their guests were treated to a cocktail and dinner gala Saturday evening. The reception featured delicious food, dancing, and a program to honor Local 50 members, retirees, and the apprentice winners of the competition.
To provide this no-cost training through a Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee, Local 50 works in conjunction with the Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund. The JATC coordinates and funds the union insulation industry’s apprenticeship training program and journeyman upgrade education programs.
