Congratulations to Joel Chavez, an Apprentice Insulator working out of the Summit Contracting Seattle office who won the nationwide Insulators Union Master Apprentice Competition in 2023!
For the past 21 years, the Insulation Industry International Apprentice and Training Fund (IIIATF) has held annual competitions that tests the skills and knowledge of Registered Apprentices. Every Local, Regional and Conference contest is different, and the path to the final Master Apprentice Competition (MAC) can vary. Every year, 10 competitors come together to compete against each other on a written test and an unknown mockup designed to put their skills and knowledge of Mechanical Insulation to the test. In recent years this mockup has been inspired by the host city attractions.
We are excited to be celebrating such a great up and comer for IREX!
