There are many stages to becoming a United Association apprentice or journeyman. Below you find more information on how to land one of the many plumbing and pipefitting jobs with the UA:
Because the apprenticeship program includes on-the-job training, you will be able to essentially “earn while you learn”. Apprentices can choose to pursue a career as a plumber, pipefitter, sprinkler fitter, or service technician in the air conditioning/refrigeration field, etc. by choosing a specific curriculum. The local union you have applied through will often determine the length of the hiring process for thr curriculum you have selected.
If you have applied for an apprenticeship with the United Association, you will most likely need to take a Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT). The BMCT was designed to evaluate your mechanical aptitude by presenting you with a variety of questions, diagrams, etc. The main purpose of the BMCT is to assess your future performance in the apprenticeship program and in your eventual career path. Obtaining a high score on the BMCT will demonstrate your knowledge of basic mechanical concepts, as well as your aptitude for learning mechanical concepts and tasks.
