Become an Apprentice
In 1936, The United Association’s joint apprenticeship program was the first nationally registered program recognized by the Department of Labor in the United States. Over the many decades since, UA training has evolved into a sophisticated and comprehensive program of classroom, workshop and on-the-job training. This high-tech, cutting-edge training ensures that apprentices who complete the five-year program will have a career path that provides good wages, generous benefits, and opportunities that range from project management to owning their own business.
Certifications ensure that not only are specific UA skills validated, but members are able to be more competitive in the field and more valuable to our contractors.
Programs for Veterans
Veterans welcomed into the UA will discover opportunities for a lifelong career, not just a job.
Resources for Parents and Counselors
Parents, teachers and school counselors play a vital role in the success of their children and students. The UA has many resources to help these influencers fully understand the advantages and benefits of a UA membership.
