United Union of Roofer, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local Union 142 - Des Moines, IA

Apprenticeship training is directed by a committee of

employers and the union. They work together to insure

all workers are fully trained in all aspects of our trade

and safety.

Apprenticeship Training consists of classroom and on-

the-job training. Our members learn about all aspects

of roofing and waterproofing.

Apprentices spent a minimum of 144 hours of

classroom training each year for 3 years and 4800

hours on-the-job training with a mentor during the

term of their apprenticeship. Safety training is very

important to us. Training of OSHA 10 and OSHA 30,

rigging and signaling and hazardous communications

are just some of the safety items we cover.
