PLUMBING TECHNOLOGY
Students in the Plumbing Technology program learn how to
design, install, and repair residential and commercial plumbing
systems and hydronic heating systems. Some of the skills acquired
are joining different types of piping materials, reading blueprints,
and installing and repairing boilers, plumbing fixtures, faucets,
and water heaters.
Employment opportunities in the plumbing and pipe-fitting
industries include the installation of plumbing and heating
systems in new buildings and the installation and maintenance
of plumbing, heating, and piping systems for industries, public
utilities, or government agencies. Self-employment is another
option. Many graduates become self-employed plumbers after
completing their apprenticeships.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
A graduate of this program will be able to do the following:
* Apply safety principles and demonstrate good work habits in
the trade.
* Use the hand and power tools of the trade.
* Identify piping materials and install them using proper
connections.
* Use and apply trade terms and technical data.
* Read and interpret blueprints, specifications, and codes as
they apply to the trade.
* Lay out, estimate, calculate, and use mathematical skills as
required in the trade.
* Install, maintain, and repair plumbing, heating, and
mechanical systems and equipment.
* Keep abreast of new developments in the field.
* Demonstrate the ability to write letters of application, memos,
work orders, reports, and apply communication skills in the
world of work.
