Certified Instructors

Fort Campbell UA VIP Instructor Michael Smith

Educating the instructors who will teach in local union training programs is just as important to the UA's training efforts as is the apprentice and journey worker training that they will provide to others. United Association instructors must be kept abreast of any technological changes, such as the newest methods and latest equipment, as well as any codes and regulations that affect what they teach UA members in their home locals.

The United Association has developed a well-respected and highly-effective college accredited program of instructor education consisting of five one-week sessions over a period of five years which dates back to 1954.

“The VIP program taught us a lot, and I definitely felt like I had a foot forward coming out of the program.”
