The UA Veterans In Piping program is the first step to a lifelong career in the piping industry.
Upon completion of the free 18-week accelerated training program transitioning military service members are provided direct entry into the United Association’s five-year registered apprenticeship program.
Once you become a UA member the opportunities for career progression are endless. Starting as an apprentice, the UA provides numerous training opportunities to grow and develop into a highly skilled journey-level worker.
Once an apprentice tops out of the apprenticeship program and becomes a journeyman, they open up an excellent career pathway with the potential to do even more in the piping industry.
Become a foreman, superintendent, UA signatory contractor/business owner, UA officer or UA organizer—or embrace the opportunity to help prepare the next generation of skilled tradespeople by becoming a UA instructor.
