Apprenticeship is both an ancient tradition and a highly-effective modern training method, particularly for those choosing to work in the exciting and increasingly technical construction industry. 

LU # 475's apprentices learn through both classroom and on-the-job training in what is considered by many to be the best construction industry apprentice program in the world. The five-year apprenticeship period is divided into one-year segments, each of which includes 2,000 hours of on-the-job training and a minimum of 216 hours of related classroom instruction.

All training programs are run through United Association local joint training committees in specific cities or regions, and are overseen by National Joint Training Committees. One of the things that makes the UA training program so successful is that we view it as a joint partnership between labor and management. 

Apprenticeship is not an easy time, apprentices must work the same hours as journeymen plus attend classes. Yet, this can be a highly rewarding career path for an individual who is motivated to learn the piping trade and become an active member of a proud and noble trade union.
