Pre-Employment Steamfitter-Pipefitter

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

www.sait.ca

This 12-week pre-employment program comprises the first period of the corresponding apprentice program that SAIT currently offers in this trade. The program trains individuals to lay out, assemble, fabricate, maintain and repair piping systems which carry water, steam, chemicals or fuel used in heating, cooling, lubricating and other processes. Steamfitter-Pipefitter is a pipe trade that deals with the installation, maintenance and repair of piping systems, but differs from other pipe trades in relation to where the work is performed, the types of piping that are involved and the training that is required. To install a typical piping system in a commercial building or industrial plant, a Steamfitter-Pipefitter will study blueprints, drawings and specifications to determine the type of pipe and tools to use, and lay out the sequence of tasks. Heavy lifting may be required.
