Six transitioning servicemembers attended the Sheet Metal Skilled Trades Rotation March 28.

The veterans got the chance to learn about a new career as a Sheet Metal Apprentice and also build a tool box in the hands-on project portion of the event. Participants were allowed to keep the tool box they built.

The Skilled Trades Rotation is a free voluntary training event where individuals acquire trade and craft skills. Participants visit a training site, get a block of instruction, and then complete a 24-hour project. 

The event is open to transitioning servicemembers, military spouses, military high schoolers, and veterans.

Upcoming Skilled Trades Rotations are:

April 25: Advanced Manufacturing

May 16: Ironworkers

June 28: Carpenters
