In this eight-week certification program, students learn how to install and repair both high- and low-pressure pipe systems used in manufacturing, in the generation of electricity, and in the heating and cooling of buildings. The training prepares students to pursue construction jobs as entry-level pipefitters or helpers.

SOWELA’s course follows NCCER Levels 1 & 2 curriculum. Successful completers receive NCCER credentials for both levels of pipefitting.

The pipefitting program begins March 2 and ends April 24, 2020, with class hours running from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The cost is $1,600. Scholarships and financial aid are available for those that qualify.
