Skilled Pipe Trades Apprenticeship

Union Pipe Trades Apprentice leans to weld

Are you interested in pursuing a skilled trade? Are you are someone who is skilled using their hands to create and repair? A SWPTA union-sponsored apprenticeship training program is perfect for people looking to better themselves through skilled work.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is an arrangement in which you receive real-life hands-on training, technical instruction, and a paycheck for all your efforts. Some skilled occupations even require an apprenticeship. 

SWPTA unions offer training in skilled trades where an apprenticeship gives you all the advantages including:

  • Pipefitters
  • Plumbers
  • Welders
  • Sheet metal workers
  • HVAC-R technicians
  • Sprinkler fitters

Each of these trades require manual dexterity, attention to detail, the ability to problem solve and think critically, and the technical knowledge required to get the task done safely and efficiently. 


Earn While You Learn

Apprenticeships are hands-on learning programs that expose students to real-life labor simulations. Much like an internship program, apprenticeships provide invaluable learning experiences in labor-intensive jobs and allow you the opportunity to earn a wage while you learn a skilled trade.

As an apprentice, you are treated like a full-time employee with a union membership attached. You’ll benefit from this opportunity that provides you the chance to learn under the wing of an experienced professional while getting paid for your contribution.
