Take The Class

Speak with your CTE coordinator to find out if the UAP program is available in your school district.

To enroll in the UAP program, you’ll need to register and complete Manufacturing Principles 1 & Composites 1 during your junior or senior year of high school. Your CTE coordinator will work with your teachers to ensure you’re on the right track to earning your certificate.

Use The Skills

Once you’ve enrolled in your UAP courses, you’ll apply for the UAP externship.

Your CTE coordinator will connect you with one of our partnered employers to complete your required externship, providing you with an opportunity to explore your career options and gain hands-on experience in the workplace.

Apply now or apply later; your UAP certificate never expires.
