As a sign and display worker, you’ll create everything from window lettering to neon signs.
Sign and display workers create attention.
Everyone notices signs. And as a sign and display worker, you’ll create ones that are also admired, and can be seen everywhere from Broadway to Main Street.
Your training will teach you how to design, fabricate, construct, paint and install fabulous signs and displays using innovative and high-quality workmanship, state-of-the-art equipment and computer software. You’ll master how to work with materials such as plastic, metal, vinyl, neon and wood, and learn everything from lettering to screen-printing, stenciling, welding and neon bending.
You’ll probably specialize in one aspect of the industry, such as graphic design or fabrication, and your apprenticeship will be based on your choice.

The next game-changer is to be able to reach the youth in our schools. They are the next generation of IUPAT members, and we need to ensure our organization is a career option they are familiar with as they graduate high school. They need to know we offer an accredited apprenticeship program and an associate’s degree while receiving a debt-free education and work in an industry that will provide for their family. Knowing this will make the IUPAT the preferred choice for their future.Brian Courtien
