UA Instructor Training Program and the CDA Return to Ann Arbor, Michigan
The United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinkler Fitters, Welders and HVACR Technicians return to the Washtenaw Community College (WCC) campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan on August 11th for their annual week-long Instructor Training Program.
For more than 60 years, the UA has conducted extensive training and information classes for skilled trades professionals including welders, pipefitters, plumbers, sprinkler fitters, heating, ventilation and air conditioning technicians – some participants attending from as far as Australia. Chris Haslinger, director of training for the UA, says that throughout the years, the UA has been able to enhance and expand its many training programs.
As in past years, the Copper Development Association instructs and advances learning opportunities through hands-on competitions that take place in an open-air pavilion on the WCC Campus. Apprentice projects will be judged as they work on pipefitting, welding, soldering and brazing. The CDA provides not only copper & other materials for the competition, but many hours of professional hands-on training and instruction in classrooms throughout the week-long event.
