Contractor members of the ICA are committed to the safety of our workforce as well as the general public. We work closely with the apprentice training center operated by Local 12 to ensure that the latest safety, technology and skill training is offered to apprentices through classroom training and hands-on experience. We understand that a successful project cannot be completed without the investment in safety and skill training.


The Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local Union 12 of New York City is committed to providing an adequate supply of trained insulation mechanics with the competitive skills necessary to meet industry needs now and in the future.

The goal of the apprentice program is to provide the highest level of training to apprentices so that they may assume positions as fully-qualified journeymen ready to meet the professional challenges of the insulation industry.

The program is structured for entry-level workers as well as for insulation workers already employed within the industry who wish to upgrade their skills and to advance to journeyman status while at the same time benefiting from membership in the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Union.

The apprenticeship program emphasizes on-the-job training and classroom instruction as well as the use of textbooks and other course materials that give participants a thorough knowledge of the trade.

Apprentices are assigned to work for an insulation contractor and work side-by-side with experienced journeymen who understand practical application and theory.
