Steve Fox, Training Director

No other organization serves the training needs of the Sprinkler Fitting industry like the United Association. For over a century, the UA has been training the most highly-qualified workers in the United States and Canada.

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 time.

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 hours.

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 program.

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.
