The HCC Apprenticeship programs are part of a federally structured training system in which the apprentice works full-time during the day for a sponsoring employer learning the skills of the trade, and completes classroom related instruction in the evening or on weekends. There are no tuition or fees for the classroom related instruction. The apprentice may incur some costs for tools, books, and materials needed for the trade.
What Roofers Do
Roofers replace, repair, and install the roofs of buildings.
Roofing work is physically demanding because it involves climbing, bending, kneeling, and heavy lifting. Roofers may work overtime in order to finish a particular job, especially during busy summer months.
How to Become a Roofer
Although most roofers learn on the job, some enter the occupation through an apprenticeship.
The median annual wage for roofers was $42,100 in May 2019.
