UA Local 179 / SPI JTAC / NAUSC host UA Western Regional Apprentice Competition

May 7, 2012
UA Local 179 / SPI JTAC / NAUSC host UA Western Regional Apprentice Competition
 
 
The Western Regional Apprentice Competitions held May 2nd 3rd and 4th have concluded and there are winners.

 

It was a clean sweep by Alberta. Three of the winners are from 488 and two are from 496.

 

All indications from the comments are that it was a great competition and all went well, with a few minor bumps, but nothing serious. A few competitors commented about material shortage from the BOM, but if they had executed the work to the drawings they would have done better I am sure.

 

The winners of the UA Western Regional 2012 Competitions are:

 

HVAC: Dennis Cowan/ Local 488

 

Welder: Phil Azevedo/ Local 488

 

Steamfitter/Pipefitter: Dean Fradette/ Local 488

 

Sprinkler Fitter: Cliff Iwaasa/Local 496

 

Plumber: Michael Metcalfe/Local 496

 

Regards,

 

Ken Busch

Director of Training
