5-year Paid Apprenticeships

Beginning a new career as a Local #6 apprentice is exciting and rewarding. Unlike other career paths, we provide a paid apprenticeship, with progressive pay increases along the way.

This provides economic stability and professional advancement for our newest members along the way.

Local 6 is committed to training delivering one of the best training programs in the industry. Throughout your apprenticeship you will continue to improve your skills and become a highly skilled and trained UA Craftsman. This training will allow you to make a great wage, provide health insurance for you and your family, and the security of knowing that when the time comes, you can retire comfortably.

Apprentices are indentured in the program for 5 years. During this time, each works with a contractor and attends school two nights a week. Upon completion of the program and State testing, the apprentice becomes fully qualified and licensed journeyman in their chosen specialty.
