2017 UA/Massachusetts Apprentice Contest
LU 537 Training Center – Dorchester
May 4th – May 5th, 2017



James Curran (Asst. Training Coordinator), Brian Nicholson (Refrigeration Judge), Frank Capuzzo (Pipefitter Judge), Paul Sheehan (Pipefitter Judge), Paul Katapodis (Welding Judge), Paul McGrath (Training Coordinator), Michael Stenstrom (Welding Runner Up), Peter Zamagni (Welding Winner), Christopher Rovaldi (Pipefitter Winner), Evan Chateauneuf (Pipefitter Runner Up), James Devlin (Refrigeration Runner Up), Michael Flores (Refrigeration Winner) and Christopher Brennan (Refrigeration Judge)

Over the course of a two day contest, apprentices took exams in their fields and completed events in their division and general areas of knowledge, which included Crane Signals, Knots and Braze Projects. The Pipefitter apprentices piped a Heat Exchange, the Welding Apprentices completed a Spool Project and the Refrigeration Apprentices worked with Hydronic Piping, Electrical Wiring of a Boiler and Pumps/Controls. The judges combined scores from their written exams with their performance and results of their Hands-on Projects. 

First Place Winners will move on to the UA/District I Apprentice Contest that will be held in Connecticut in June. Local 537 will be represented by Peter Zamagni in the Welding Division, Christopher Rovaldi in the Pipefitter Division and Michael Flores in the Refrigeration Division. Congratulations to all of our contestants for their great work and for making it a really tough job for our judges! Good Luck to all moving on to Connecticut!
