UA VIP CERTIFICATION
Certifications are becoming increasingly important in the piping industry. Craftsmen are now often required to hold specific certifications in order to verify their ability to perform the complex and challenging work of the modern pipe mechanic. UA members have access to a variety of certification programs, enabling them to obtain the credentials they need to meet workplace demand. Programs include valve repair, medical gas installation, welding, refrigerant handling, industrial rigging, UA/MCA foreman, geothermal, green awareness, and instrumentation. Each program relies on third party validation for an objective evaluation of UA journey workers’ ability.
