Training Center

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.

If the United Association wanted to select the area which best reflects this commitment to the training and excellence produced, it could well look to state of Pennsylvania.  Thanks in part to our relationship with the Mechanical Contractors Association, Steamfitters local 420 offers state of the art training year round.

We train apprentices and journeyworkers in many skills including: Pipe Fabrication, Pipe Welding, Orbital Tube Welding, Medical Gas Systems, Process Safety Management, Instrumentation /Calibration, Heating/Air Conditioning/Refrigeration, Rigging, Pipe Drafting, OSHA Safety, Computer Aided Drafting, Computerized Pipe Design in 3D, Primavera (Computer Software) Planning and Scheduling, and more.

In addition to our five-year apprenticeship programs, we offer continuing education opportunity that includes journeymen training and certification, as well as associate degree programs.

Journeyworker Photo Request for NEW Safety Course Card - (5/2/2018)

In the near future, the training center will be issuing a new card to Local 420 Journeyworkers regarding their safety courses (PSM, OSHA, etc.).  The new card will have a photo of the member and a QR code that can be scanned and will display all safety courses taken by the member.  These cards will eventually replace the paper issued PSM cards with expiration stickers.  In order to begin the process, the training center is requesting photos of journeymen who took the PSM Initial Course prior to the photo taking process becoming all digital pictures.  If you took your Initial 8-Hour PSM Course between the years of 1994 and 2006, please email a current head and shoulder photo of yourself (please, no wearing of sunglasses or hats) in JPEG format to Peter Klein, Director of Training at pklein@lu420.com.  Please include your Full Name, UA Card Number, and “PSM Photo” in the subject line of the email.
