Been planning to join the local sheet metal union really soon to start my life long career.

Having no idea what to expect down the road through the apprentice years and years following (except I will learn to weld, plasma cut, and work on air
conditioning units) doesn't help too much though.

I have done some work in HVAC before with Energy Star who's only tasks were to carry equipment and tape up air vents.

I will be working through the inner city and around it, but really don't know what to expect for my work days and what the future.

Any knowledge worth sharing?

here you go, anon. i can't provide much advice, as this isn't an area where i'm knowledgeable in.
you should probably wear ear plugs while you work with the sheet metal, though. constant exposure to loud noise at a level of 85 dbSPL (the legal maximum average sound level) for more than 8 hours is not safe, according to osha guidelines for workplaces. additionally, exposure to sounds of 90 dbSPL is known to cause temporary hearing loss, and can result in permanent hearing loss if not given a few days to recover.

something to take note of, because a large sheet of sheet metal that hits the floor is going to sound very loud.
