COM’s NCCER Industrial Pipefitting Program prepares students for a successful career
in an entry-level position as a pipefitter helper often leading into a pipefitter
career. Pipefitters lay out, assemble, install and repair pipelines or pipe systems
that carry water, steam, air or other liquids or gases for industrial production and
process systems. Their key responsibilities include installing pipes and fixtures,
connecting pipes and using tools such as cutting torches, pipe threaders and pipe
benders. They work according to drawings and blueprints specifications. Pipefitters
usually begin as helpers or apprentices.
The program is noncredit and nontransferable and helps to prepare students for employment in a growing occupation. Each course combines classroom instruction with hands-on technical training, a critical part of building skills for this field. The program follows the NCCER curriculum that is supported by leading construction and maintenance companies and national associations.
Classes meet two nights per week to accommodate working students. Students will receive OSHA 10 and NCCER credentials and a COM occupational skills award upon completion.
