Along with the on-the-job training you will attend school two nights a week at our state of the art training center.
In June of 2006 Local Union 442 moved into a state of the art administration and training facility, located in North Modesto. The new 25,000 square foot building features a Union Hall Assembly Area and Local 442 Administration Offices. The Training Center consists of 7 classrooms and 4 shops which include an 18 computer CAD room, an architectural drawing classroom, a refrigeration training shop, a pipe fitter training shop, a plumbing training shop and a welding shop where stick, MIG and TIG are taught. The members of Local 442 are highly trained professionals that have served a five year apprenticeship or equal. The piping apprenticeship is a five year program where you will earn as you learn. The starting pay is $19.01 per hour and you will receive an upgrade every 6 months which will include a $2.00 per hour raise.
