There is no substitute for a UA trained craftsperson! The UA Training program has been producing qualified, effective and cost efficient workers for over one hundred years.
No other organization serves the training needs of the piping industry like the United Association Training programs.

We in the United Association's training programs have watched a transformation occur inside our ranks over the past forty years. The utilization of our training facilities coupled with the on-the-job training that takes place on each UA jobsite has produced both a stable and skilled workforce responsible for building and maintaining mechanical systems in the various industrial and residential facilities across the North American landscape.

No one can match our commitment or investment. The UA spends over $130 million annually on training efforts involving approximately 330,000 journeymen and apprentices in over 300 local training facilities at any given time.
