UA Local Union No. 343 - 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 $140 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 an area which reflects commitment to the training and excellence produced, it could well look to Vallejo, Ca.

In addition to our five-year apprenticeship programs, Plumbers, Steamfitters and  Local 343 offers continuing education opportunity that includes journeymen training and certification, as well as an associate’s degree program.

Our Training Center is located in Vallejo, CA and the contact information is as follows:
