*High School Transcripts or GED with Scores
The Joint Apprenticeship Committee is aware that certain schools will not provide a copy of official Transcripts or will not provide unofficial Transcripts to past graduates or students who attended classes and received credit. However, they will mail a copy directly to the Training Center. If this is what transpires during your application process, we have created a checklist on your Applicant homepage so you can review your status in the application process. Remember you are responsible to successfully complete the application process.

Nondiscriminatory Policy
The Sheet Metal Workers’ JATF of Local 19 admits apprentices of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to apprentices at the JATF. The JATF does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other JATF administered programs.

Filling out your application is just the first step in the application process. As an applicant, you will be required to meet the particular requirements of the Apprenticeship Standards of the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Fund. These Standards are approved by the Federal Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training and the Pennsylvania and Delaware Apprenticeship Councils.


Successful applicants will be required to serve four and one-half years of apprenticeship and meet the minimum hours of related instruction. The work is in shops and construction sites, and requires good physical condition. The applicant should have above average mechanical and mathematical abilities, and like shop and mechanical drawing courses. The wage rate starts low and progresses at regular intervals during the four and one-half year apprentice-ship. There are excellent union fringe benefits.


Application requirements:

  • A $10.00 application fee is required. (Money orders are the only acceptable legal tender.)
  • Two forms of Identification are required. (This can be a Driver’s License, SS Card, School ID, Military ID or State non-driver’s license.) One form of identification must have a picture. A birth certificate is not considered as one of these two forms of identification, as there is a separate requirement for a birth certificate.
  • Legal documentation of birth. (This can be an Official Federal, State, or County birth certificate or a Passport. Hospital Birth Notices and Baptismal Certificates are not legal documentation of birth.)
