Sealant applicators seal all types of constructed joints to ensure a building is airtight and waterproof.
Salaries will depend on your location, employer and any overtime that you do. Self-employed sealant applicators set their own pay rates
The Association of Sealant Applicators runs its own apprenticeship scheme, which leads to an NVQ Level 2 in specialist installation occupations – joint sealant application. You must be at least 18 years old to apply.
The two-year apprenticeship includes a combination of 18 days' off-the-job training, 20 days' on-site training with an employer and five days' on-site assessment. Apprentices spend the remainder of the two years gaining experience on site and work towards the following qualifications:
It’s a good idea to have at least three to six months of on-site experience with an employer before starting this construction apprenticeship. If you haven’t worked in construction before you can start out as a labourer and your employer might train you in sealant application.
