The Advanced Plumbing Technology diploma is a unique opportunity to get the technical and career essential skills you need to succeed in the plumbing industry. The diploma program offers a direct pathway into trades training at NAIT without having to first be a registered apprentice and can also serve as a pathway to apprenticeship.

The program focuses on theory and hands-on training required to master installation, repair, perform mechanical system maintenance and more. You will learn specific technical knowledge and get hands-on skills and experience. You will also get to explore new technologies and systems such as water recycling and re-use, solar and geothermal heating systems and water conservation.

Unlike other programs, the Advanced Plumbing Technology diploma allows you to receive technical training, enter the trade, and present industry relevant skills to potential employers as soon as you graduate.

Graduates from this program have training in heating, gas and plumbing, as well as knowledge of the existing apprenticeship program. You will be prepared for work in all aspects of the industry, including new construction, maintenance and renovations in residential, commercial and industrial applications.

What You’ll Learn

  • Industry standards, legislation and workplace expectations.
  • Design, installation and maintenance of all relevant systems, including: gas systems, hydronic heating systems and gas appliances, potable and non-potable water systems, service drainage, waste and vent (DWV) systems.
  • Design, interpretation and conversion of drawings for plumbing installations.
  • Mathematical concepts for plumbing installations.
  • Effective written and verbal communication tools.

I did 2 semesters of game design online and the experience was awesome. Staff are very helpful and patient with me even though I ask A LOT of questions. Online system for learning was simple and easy to navigate. I don't know if it's me, because I'm out of town and it's harder to make connections, but I recommend building industry contacts while you're learning. NAIT will help, but I don't think they'll do it for you.
