The UA Local 100 JATC training program provides our apprentices with a high-quality classroom education to help them learn their trade. In the classroom, these highly skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen receive education in science, math, blue print reading, and welding. 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.
