Because military veterans have the ideal qualities our industry needs:
strong work ethic, maturity, and discipline.


The ITI has 153 training centers across the country and provides four- or five-year programs to qualified apprentices in HVAC, welding, architectural, sign design, building information modeling (BIM), testing, adjusting and balancing air flow (TAB), commercial and residential service and more. Because the schools are supported by the individual memberships, students graduate debt free. They also earn while they learn as they work on job sites, testing and honing the skills they learn in the lab, shop and classroom.

There is no need for a veteran to start over, earning minimal wages. They can get to work on a career, complete with benefits, they can make last their lifetime.

At most training centers across the country, qualified veterans may have direct entry or be eligible for advanced standing into the apprenticeship, bypassing waiting lists and time tables. Direct entry takes the skills veterans have learned in the military and puts them right to work.
