WPTA Restarts Wisconsin's UA-Veterans In Piping Program (UA-VIP) in 2023

Beginning in 2011, the United Association and Wisconsin Pipe Trades Association established the UA-Veterans In Piping in Wisconsin in order to create direct pathways for the men and women who serve our country to enter into careers in the unionized piping industry. Following nine successful years of training Wisconsin's Veterans, Reservists, and National Guard, the 2020 through 2022 classes were canceled due to the the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The Wisconsin Pipe Trades Association is proud to announce that the program will restart in 2023 and that applications are being accepted until January 31, 2023 for the class beginning in April.

We are currently working on an online application process through our website which will allow Veterans to apply for the UA-VIP program in a simple, user friendly process.  An announcement of the application process opening should be coming in the near future.
