Over the past several decades,
the United Association's training programs
have produced a stable, skilled
workforce responsible for building and
maintaining sprinkler systems in the
various industrial, commercial and
residential facilities that make up the
North American landscape.
No one can match the commitment or
investment. The UA spends over $100
million annually on training programs
efforts involving approximately 100,000
journeymen and apprentices in over 400
local training facilities at any given
If the United Association wanted to
select the area which best reflects this
commitment to the training and
excellence produced, it could well look
to Northern California. Sprinkler
Fitters Local 483 has a brand new state
of the art training facility which we
encourage you to come and visit. You can
call to set up a tour or just stop by,
we are here most days during business
In addition to our five-year
apprenticeship programs, Sprinkler
Fitters Local 483 offers continuing
education opportunities that includes
journeymen training and certification,
as well as an associate’s degree
We understand the importance of having
trained quality crafts people
installing, inspecting, testing, and
maintaining your fire protection systems
and no one in Northern California trains
more or better quality fire sprinkler
fitters than U.A. Local 483.
