"As apprentices become journeyworkers they take pride in the hard work they put in, and they understand the importance of passing the knowledge and skills they developed on to the next generation of apprentices that come behind them. That’s what Registered Apprenticeship is all about."

Chris Haslinger, United Association of Journeymen & Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the U.S., Canada and Australia.
