A welder is needed on most construction projects throughout the country to cut and join a wide range of materials, from steel, cast iron and plastic to other complex and specialized materials.
Welders install, maintain, and repair piping systems. They also join structural steel brackets and supports for those systems. They work in different environments and must be able to weld in many different positions.
Throughout the country, there is a major need for welders in different jobs such as construction, steel work, or work on machinery and other equipment.
The UA Local 100 JATC training program provides our apprentices with a high-quality classroom education to help them learn their trade. They also receive mandatory OSHA safety training to keep them safe on the jobsite.
During the apprenticeship, you will reinforce what you learn in the classroom by working everyday in the field bridging the gap between knowing and doing. The apprentices will also receive wages from day one and they will increase every year, tuition free education, and other security and health benefits.
