What does a reinforcing metal worker do?

Learn from a qualified skilled trades worker as an apprentice and start your career as a reinforcing metal worker.

Reinforcing metal workers play an important role in keeping various construction projects together. They measure, cut and insert iron and steel bars or mesh to reinforce concrete structures.

With an apprenticeship alongside reinforcing metal workers, you’ll learn to use all kinds of hardware, tools, and equipment such as blowtorches, fasteners, rod-bending machines, and other hand tools. All concrete structures have steel reinforcement in some form.
