Drywall Finishing - What to Expect

A Drywall Finisher necessitates the learning of specific skills and safety procedures to be able to build walls and ceilings to perfection. Several classroom and on-the-job hours are needed to become a skilled drywall finisher and on your way to a top-paying journeyman position.

Training classes are held year-round and are mandatory for all apprentices. Under the guidance of an instructor, apprentices will receive training in the following subjects but not limited to:
  • CPR/First Aid
  • OSHA Health & Safety
  • Scaffold
  • Fall Protection
  • Labor History
  • Proper and Safe Use of Power Tools
  • Proper and Safe Use of Hand Tools
  • Hand Tools
  • Automatic Taping Tools
  • Fire Taping
  • Fire Proofing
  • Job Site Safety
  • Level 5 Finishes
  • Estimating

An apprentice will be released from on-the-job work to an assigned training center for periods of one week at a time. The apprentice will continue to learn the skills needed to eventually work on any drywall project.
