The Loyd E. Williams Pipe Trade Training Center in San Jose, California, prides itself in going beyond the scope of traditional apprenticeship by offering a comprehensive "Journey Level Training Catalog," thus encouraging journeyman graduates to continue their training. The catalog contains a full slate of courses that can be utilized to add new skills in the form of certification such as medical gas installer, backflow prevention, foreman training, green awareness, and biopharmaceutical piping. The center also offers a variety of no-cost refresher courses to assist journeymen in updating skills in a process they may not regularly use in the field, such as rigging and tube bending.
