The Industrial Pipefitting Program offers courses that provide core knowledge and basic skills for people wishing to enter the pipefitting craft and provides a good foundation for a continuing and developing career path in that business.

Students learn how to measure, cut, set up, lay out, and install piping systems using a variety of materials, fittings and joining methods. Pipefitting is closely associated with plumbing. This is not a residential plumbing program, although some plumbing skills are covered. The program focuses on pipefitting skills and knowledge required for industrial and construction application. Associated topics, which are studied as part of this program are: heat exchanges, valves, steam traps, boilers, and fire suppression systems.
