About the UPHCA Academy

The UPHCA Apprenticeship Academy was created to bring more qualified individuals into our trade, while providing them flexibility, statewide access, mentoring with an industry driven and industry supported program.

In January of 2023, the Utah Plumbing & Heating Contractors Association announced the creation of an online Plumbing Apprenticeship Academy.

This DOPL and DOL approved apprenticeship program is designed to provide the individual student with achievement in an alternative way of learning to meet the educational requirements for being an apprentice plumber.

This has been a huge undertaking by the UPHCA, and we are thankful for the support of our member companies and academy sponsors.

The Academy is open to everyone, however tuition discounts are available for UPHCA members.

The curriculum used is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, Office of Apprenticeship, and Utah Department of Professional Licensing (DOPL). Almost all coursework takes place online, and can be accessed at anytime and anywhere to better meet the needs of the individual’s work schedule and personal time.
