Piping Foundations

Piping Foundations

This 21-week (630 hours) program takes a student
with little or no previous experience in the
piping trades and supplies them with the necessary
skills to seek employment in industry as an
apprentice Plumber, Steamfitter/Pipefitter or
Sprinkler System Installer. The program exposes
the students to aspects of residential, commercial
and industrial piping systems in these trades,
focusing on developing practical skills. The
curriculum follows SkilledTradesBC guidelines for
the first-year in-class components of
apprenticeship training for Plumber,
Steamfitter/Pipefitter and Sprinkler System
Installer, which includes installation, repair and
maintenance procedures in compliance with the
applicable codes and standards.
Students will receive Level 1 technical training
credit toward an apprenticeship in the three
trades upon successfully completing the program.
This allows the successful students to experience
several trades without having to commit to one in
particular and, upon completion, have the choice
to pursue one or more career paths.
