No other organization serves the training needs of the piping industry like the United Association. For over a century, the UA has been training the most highly-qualified workers in the United States and Canada.
Over the past several decades, the United Association's training programs have produced a stable, skilled workforce responsible for building and maintaining piping systems in the various industrial and residential facilities that make up the North American landscape.
No one can match the commitment or investment. The UA spends over $100 million annually on training programs efforts involving approximately 100,000 journeymen and apprentices in over 400 local training facilities at any given time.
If the United Association wanted to select the area which best reflects this commitment to the training and excellence produced, it could well look to Southeastern Pennsylvania. We encourage you to stop by our state-of-the-art training facility for a tour!
In addition to our five-year apprenticeship programs, Plumbers Local 690 offers continuing education opportunity that includes journeymen training and certification, as well as an associate’s degree program.
