    Plumbers and pipe-fitters assemble, install, and make changes in pipe systems used to carry water, steam, air, and other liquids and gases. They install plumbing fixtures, such as bathtubs and toilets. They also install heating and refrigeration units. Plumbing and pipe-fitting are generally considered to be separate trades, though many qualified craft workers are skilled in both fields.

    This plumber and pipefitter certificate program teaches pipe system design, safety, and tool use. The course also consists of pre-practical training, as well as safety, trade math, and science. The students will be actively involved in the plumbing of a house, working with other trade entry students from carpentry and the electrical departments.

    Plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters typically do the following:

    • Install pipes and fixtures
    • Study blueprints and follow state and local building codes
    • Determine the amount of material and type of equipment needed
    • Inspect and test installed pipe systems and pipelines
    • Troubleshoot systems that are not working
    • Replace worn parts
