Welcome to the Roofers Local #149 Apprentice Schools
We have two Apprenticeship Schools, one located in Oak Park serving the Detroit area and one
located in Clio serving the Mid Michigan area.
Our schools are jointly funded and trusted programs between Labor and Management ensuring that
the schools stay at the forefront of the of the latest innovations in roofing technology.
The schools invite any and all Roof and Waterproofing System Manufacturers to present their
products and latest developments in their systems to both our contractors and students. Therefore the
customers get the most up to date roof system application they choose for their building.
Classes are held at our state of the art schools providing students with classroom and hands on
training. Thats right! Our students are not just taught the science behind what they do everyday, they
learn how to apply what they've learned on actual roof mock ups. Our instructors, and Contractor
foremen aid in the practical applications, so they are done correctly before they are on a customers
Along with the regular curriculum our instructors also teach Unionism, First Aid, Journey Person
Upgrades, and OSHA 10 & 30 classes-just to name a few. Our Apprentices aren't the only ones going
to school, our instructors also attend a program called "Train the Trainer" provided by our International
Union, where they learn updated curriculum, exchange information, class ideas, and discuss the
changes needed to keep our schools at the forefront in educating the men and women of Roofers Local
This is just a small example of what keeps us ahead of our competition and among the best Roofers
and Waterproofers in the world.
