OUR PIPEFITTING PROGRAMS
Our pipefitting programs provide students the skills they need to pass the American Welding Society (AWS) Certified Welder Test. Once certified, students may obtain jobs in utility companies, gas plants, manufacturing, construction and related fields.
The student learns the installation of piping systems from cost estimate, to blueprint, to installation and testing. The student learns to assemble, fabricate, test, maintain, and repair pipelines that carry water, steam, fuel or chemicals for heating, cooling, lubricating or other processes.
The student will learn to work with many kinds of pipe, ranging from small half-inch piping to piping measuring three or four feet in diameter. The student will also learn how to work with threaded, grooved and welded piping systems.
Let McAllen Careers Institute help you develop the skills necessary to become an entry-level welder or pipefitter in as few as 8 weeks!
