Assemble, install and repair ductwork made from a range of materials

As a building services engineering ductwork installer apprentice, you’ll learn to install and maintain ductwork systems in large industrial and commercial buildings, including office blocks, factories, schools, airports and hospitals. You’ll develop the skills necessary to assemble, install, pre-commission, prepare for testing and repair ductwork made from a range of materials. You’ll be able to work within new build construction sites and existing buildings under close, but not constant, supervision.
