WE TRAIN TO BE THE BEST
Explore educational opportunities at Local 455.
Exceptional training is a longstanding hallmark of Local 455. From our five-year apprenticeship program to specialized classes for journeymen, we offer a flexible curriculum that not only supports our members but also furthers our trade.
In 2014, we took our commitment to training a step further with the development a 100,000-square-foot training and certification center just outside of downtown St. Paul. The center was completed in 2015 and also serves as our union hall. With a broad collection of training modules and equipment, it is one of the most advanced steamfitting/pipefitting training centers in the United Association. It also reflects our time-honored training approach: Our apprentices learn from our journeymen, and are expected to pass their knowledge on to the next generation.
