Over eighty area students took the first step in their mechanical careers Friday. The UA 400 Pipe Trades and the Mechanical Contractors Association hosted its Apprentice Signing Day in Kaukauna on Friday September 24.
The five-year apprenticeship programs provide classroom instruction and on-the-job training from UA Certified Instructors at UA 400 training centers. Once a student completes their apprenticeship and becomes a journeyworker, continuing education opportunities are available to all UA members through specialized training and certification programs.
Three of these students are CR Meyer apprentices: Tyler Hietpas, Steamfitter Apprentice; Marco Cervantes-Palacio, Fabricator Apprentice; and Marshall Bumstead, Steamfitter Apprentice.
