You want to be an insulator. You already know how to apply non-conductive materials to prevent and reduce the passage of heat, cold and sound on industrial, plumbing, heating and air conditioning equipment. You’re familiar with various types of insulation and applications.
But you want to learn more, like how to repair different types of thermal and acoustical insulation, including calcium silicate, glass foam, mineral wool, Styrofoam or fibreglass. Maybe you want more training on how to fit insulation around obstructions, or how to finish insulated surfaces with metal cladding or canvas.
Here are some of the other subjects covered in the Insulator apprenticeship program at NAIT:
-weatherproofing with canvas jacketing, PVC, aluminum, stainless steel and mastic
-asbestos removal and abatement
-cutting, fabricating and installing fibreglass, mineral wool, foamglass, calcium silicate, polystyrenes and polyurethanes
