Plumbing and Heating as a Career
The mechanical trades, including plumbing, pipefitting and sheet metal work offer tremendous opportunities for steady, long-term employment at superior wage rates. Traditionally, construction industry wages are about 1-1/2 times the average Canadian wage. While the demand for construction is growing, there is a shortage of qualified trades-people. This shortage will lead to higher wages relative to the average worker in the long term.
The mechanical trades are compulsory trades under Saskatchewan Apprenticeship legislation. This means that all personnel installing plumbing and heating must be accredited journeymen or registered apprentices under the supervision of a journeyman.
The mechanical trades are a good choice for you if:
- You like working with your hands as well as your brain
- The thought of working behind a desk for the next 50 years doesn’t turn your crank
- You don’t like the idea of working in a factory on a production line
- If you are mechanically inclined and like either fixing or building things
- You like the idea of being your own boss some time in the future
- You hate doing the same stuff every day, every week, every year
- Hard work doesn’t frighten you
- You like learning new skills and new things but don’t feel university is your bag
If building things floats your boat, a career with All-Rite Mechanical Ltd. is for you.
What Does Apprenticeship Entail?
An apprenticeship agreement is a contract between an employer and a worker that provides for the worker to learn the skills of a trade in return for his or her labour. An apprentice is paid at a percentage of the journeyman rate during the course of his or her apprenticeship. The amount of pay increases as the apprentice accumulates hours of experience, attends school, passes the required courses and moves towards journeyman status. An apprenticeship agreement does not mean you are tied to one employer for the duration of the agreement.
Apprentices can move from one employer to another. Apprentices are required to attend trade school, about once per year. An apprentice’s employer notifies the apprenticeship branch of the hours worked by an apprentice every 6 months. Every 1800 hours or so, the apprenticeship branch books space for the apprentice in a required course and advises the apprentice to attend school at the scheduled dates.
Plumbers attend school for two sessions of 8 weeks and two sessions of 7 weeks. Sheet Metal Workers attend school for four 8 week sessions. The trade school is in Saskatoon, which means you have to make arrangements to stay in Saskatoon for the duration of the course.
The apprentice learns most of his or her trade skills on the job, under the supervision of a journeyman. An apprentice must complete 9000 hours of training to obtain journeyman status. Many employers, such as All-Rite Mechanical Ltd. provide periodic training courses both for journeymen and apprentices to keep their technical skills, code knowledge and safety certification up-to-date.
