Full-time Instructor

David Fox

David completed his education at ITT Technical Trade School in 1997, specializing in Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). This qualification opened the door to a position at University Mechanical Contractor (UMEC). The CAD expertise prepared him well for a role in detailing. He completed his apprenticeship with the Local 206 Sheet Metal JATC San Diego training center in January 2002.

David’s professional background encompasses teaching CAD night classes at the plumbers and pipefitters Local 230 for 13 years, working as a sheet metal detailer at UMEC for 15 years, and teaching CAD/Revit night classes at the Sheet Metal JATC San Diego for 10 years. In 2016, David came on board as a full-time instructor at the JATC where he currently enjoys teaching apprentices and sharing his experience.

The San Diego Federal Courthouse project marked a significant milestone in David’s career. Upon completion of the detailing phase, all detailers received an invitation for a site tour.  David and his colleagues were unsure if this opportunity signaled trouble or commendation. However, during the tour, the Sheet Metal Superintendent described the duct raisers as “a work of art”. This was the moment David felt he was a professional duct detailer.

When David is not at work, he enjoys playing bass guitar and working on art and painting projects.
