Program Details

The Pipefitting AAS is designed to train students for entry-level positions in pipefitting. Pipefitters install, assemble, fabricate, maintain, repair and troubleshoot mechanical piping systems carrying fuel,  chemicals, water, steam and air in heating, cooling, lubricating and various other process piping systems. Pipefitters are employed in the maintenance departments of power stations, refineries, offshore  installations, factories and similar establishments, by pipefitting contractors.

Pipefitting is the process of taking straight pipe sections and measuring and cutting them to fabricate piping systems. Pipe systems can be fabricated into threaded, socket, and butt welded connections. Pipe systems are essential in the transportation, delivery, and use of various industrial fluids and potable water. Pipefitters work along with welders, ironworkers, and field service technicians to fabricate, install, test, and trouble shoot pipe systems. Since pipefitters are utilized by numerous local and national economic sectors, pipefitters have and will continue to find numerous employment opportunities. The pipefitting certificate program at LSC will enable students to take advantage of this in demand career.
