Other Experience

Many of the skills that heat and frost insulators use are necessary in other jobs. You may have already worked in a job that required problem solving or teamwork, either in a different construction trade or in another industry. You can apply those skills to your work as a heat and frost insulator.

Although you aren't required to have related work experience before starting on the job, construction experience is an asset. It will prepare you for what to expect on-site.

Also, you may be able to substitute prior experience for educational requirements. If you have over four years of related on-the-job experience and some high school, college or industry courses related to insulating, you may be eligible for heat and frost insulator certification in certain provinces and territories.
