LOCAL 520 TRAINING CENTER—Join us today
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.
“The mission of the Local 520 Training Department is to provide the building trades with a highly-skilled, certified when applicable, workforce through current and relevant classroom, shop, and on-the-job training for apprentice and journeyman plumbers, pipefitters, pipe welders, and HVAC service technicians.”
