Brandon York

Full-Time Instructor

Brandon has been in the field of sheet metal for 13 years.  He started his career working non-union in the field working in architectural sheet metal.   Several years into his career, he discovered the union and decided to join.  Instead of just buying his card, he joined the apprenticeship program so he could learn all the other aspects of the sheet metal industry.  He worked for General Sheet metal in their shop running equipment, doing layout, fabrication, welding and fabricating ACM panels.  Brandon eventually moved into the office to do CAD work and CNC programming.  Brandon took a strong interest in teaching sheet metal when he competed and won first place during a regional apprenticeship competition hosted by the Sheet Metal Institute.  He has been an instructor at SMI since 2019.   

Certification/Education: Computer Networking Degree; OSHA 30; Fire Life Safety Level 1 Technician; AWS D9.1 303-9G/G; First Aid / CPR

Outside of work, Brandon enjoys overlanding, hiking, riding motorcycles and quads with his wife and two sons.
