The SMART Heroes program provides sheet metal industry training, free of charge, to enlisted men and women of the U.S. Military prior to discharge. When the SMART Heroes program is completed and the military personnel member is discharged, the graduate can select any one of the 145 SMART apprenticeship programs in the United States and be provided advanced placement as a second-year apprentice.

There are two SMART Heroes training program locations in the United States: Western Washington Sheet Metal near Seattle (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) and Colorado Springs (Fort Carson).
