We strive to enhance employment opportunities for those who complete our programs and courses by delivering the best training available today. Our qualified instructors have substantial industry experience coupled with professional certifications.
About The UA Training Centre
The UA Training Centre was established in 1990 in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland Labrador. It began with welding programs in response to the Hibernia construction project and subsequently grew to provide a range of programs within the plumbers and pipefitters’ jurisdiction. We are now largely devoted to piping trades entry level training, advanced training, safety training, and other courses to address industry needs. Welding enhancement and certification for UA Local 740 members is continuously offered in UA Local 740’s welding shop.
Our new building opened on January 26, 2009. This expanded facility has six classrooms, four large shops with a locker area, a computer lab/resource centre, and cafeteria. There is a large parking lot available for the convenience of students. The new building offers a modern educational environment with many ‘green’ features to provide an environmentally friendly and healthy educational experience.
