The United Association has the first nationally registered joint apprenticeship program in the United States---60 years and growing! Our apprenticeship program has one goal---to ensure every job done by our members is Done Once. Done Right.

All apprentices receive instruction in basic math and blueprint reading, with health and safety emphasized throughout the program.

Apprentice wages are based on a percentage of the journeyman rate, and is spelled out in each apprentice agreement. Other benefits include health care insurance, UA Pension and college credits toward degree programs at some Rhode Island colleges and through the UA International Training and Education Program.
