The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada

Safety and Training

For over a century, the UA has been training the most highly qualified workers in Canada. The UA spends over $100 million annually on training program efforts involving approximately 100,000 journeymen and apprentices in over 400 local training facilities at any given time.

All training programs are run through United Association Local joint training committees in specific cities or regions, and are overseen by National Joint Training Committees. While community colleges can offer excellent apprenticeship training, joint union contractor training facilities offer customized training programs to supply members with access to newly developed technology skills for a specialized job. The United Association offers continuing education opportunities, which include:
