UA WELDER TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The United Association established the UA Welder Training and Certification Program to provide comprehensive training and qualification for our member welders. The program trains and qualifies welders in the SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, FCAW, Machine, Semi-Automatic, Automatic and Orbital Welding processes. Since its inception in 1993, the UA’s welder training and certification program has qualified over 45,000 welders. The flexible program can accommodate special requirements of project owners and contractors. An owner can request that welders be tested and certified for a specialized procedure that may be needed on a new or unique process. The UA WCP is accepted by owners and contractors, such as American Electric Power, British Petroleum, Entergy, Conoco-Phillips, Fluor, Ashland/Marathon, Commonwealth Edison, Shell Chemical, Black & Veetch and Bechtel.
