Survey to Protect our UA Apprenticeship Program
Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Education and Training are a vital part of the piping industry. It has come to our attention that there are groups out there who believe apprenticeship programs should be watered down.

They believe that apprenticeships are too costly and that too much time and effort are spent on administrative duties to track the technicians licenses, certifications and all other educational pieces. This makes our members the best and most employable in the industry.

So please take a few moments and click on one of  the links below to take a very short survey. This will give us an opportunity to show the public just how important our apprenticeship and journeyman training has been and always will be.

Thank you for taking the time to take this survey.
