German term or phrase: Metallbauer
Hi,

What is the exact title for this: this is taken from a master craftsman certificate.

It is written:

XXX hat die Meisterprüfung vor dem zuständigen Prüfungsausschus im Metallbauer-Handwerk bestanden.

I am struggling because my first tendency was to write metalworker but then what is the difference between Metallarbeiter and Metallbauer and I had seen metal engineer somewhere. I know there is an entry but I still feel unsure.

Thanks

Steel Erector
Explanation:
"Steel erectors install the prefabricated structural steel frames of buildings such as warehouses, industrial units and multi-storey buildings. Work can be on both new buildings and the extension or adaptation of existing buildings.

THE PEOPLE
There are roughly 6,800 steel erectors and riggers in the UK. Most work for steel erection companies as sub-contractors. They tend to work in groups made up of two steel erectors, a groundsperson and a crane driver, so good teamwork is essential."
