Service Plumbing Technologies - Certificate
The one-semester plumbing certificate is designed to give students the opportunity to acquire basic skills for assisting with the installation and repairs of plumbing systems in residential and commercial scenarios. Students will learn safe and proper use of plumbing hand and power tools, calculations for plumbing, cutting and treading carbon steel pipe and making flare and compression joints. Graduates of the program will have the skills to acquire entry level plumbing technicians jobs.
This certificate is designed for students to gain immediate employment. Employment of plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Construction of buildings which need new plumbing systems should drive demand for these workers. Overall job opportunities are expected to be good, with some employers continuing to report difficulty finding qualified workers.
