MCS Influencer John Kenney breaks down the common ways you can train contractors on installing metal building products.

There are several common ways workers receive training to install metal building products. Some of the most common training methods include: 

On-the-job training

One of the most traditional training methods is on-the-job training. This type of training involves working alongside experienced installers who can demonstrate and teach the necessary skills and techniques. This approach can benefit individuals new to the metal building industry, as they can gain hands-on experience and receive personalized instruction. 

Professional trade organizations and trade school programs

Professional trade organizations, trade schools and technical colleges often offer programs specifically designed to train individuals in installing metal products. These programs typically include both classroom instruction and hands-on training and can be a good option for those who prefer a structured, formal learning environment. 

Manufacturer training programs

Many metal product manufacturers offer training programs to individuals interested in installing their products. These programs can include both on-site and online training. They can be an excellent resource for individuals who want to learn the specific techniques and procedures for installing a particular product. 

Online courses and tutorials

The internet has made it easier than ever to access information and training on various subjects, including metal product installation. Online courses and tutorials can be flexible and convenient options for those who want to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule. 

Industry workshops and conferences

Industry workshops and conferences can be an excellent opportunity for individuals to network with other professionals and attend training sessions and demonstrations on metal building product installation. These events can provide a wealth of information and be an excellent resource for those seeking to expand their knowledge and skills. 

Regardless of the training method, individuals need to have a solid understanding of the basics of metal building installation and the proper techniques and procedures for working with the specific products they will be installing. Ongoing training and professional development can also benefit individuals looking to stay up-to-date with new practices, products, and industry standards.
