    The first thing I would do is to go to a construction site and talk to one of the guys that do what you want to do. Buy him or her dinner or something.

    Find out what union they belong to and call them. Most unions have apprentice programs.

    Between the guys doing it and the union, you should get some idea of how to do this.

    I don’t know where you live so I can’t direct you to a specific place. but you should contact a vocational school in your area or a tech school they have courses that are about 8 weeks long that will teach you the basics. then you can contact a company that is in that business and you may be able to get a job and they will teach you as you work. as for a union I don’t think there is one for that area and you can start with a small machine and work your way up.
