    The United Association dates back to the year 1889. Since then, no other organization has served the training needs of the piping industry like the United Association. For over a century, the UA has been training the most highly-qualified workers in the United States and Canada. Over the past several decades, the United Association's training programs have produced a stable, skilled workforce responsible for building and maintaining piping systems in the various industrial and residential facilities that make up the North American landscape. For more information about the United Association's past and present history of quality,  visit the United Association site at:
