The Plumbing & Pipe Trades Foundation program blends in-class theory with hands-on practical skills training to prepare graduates for entry level employment and apprenticeships.

Over 30 weeks you will follow a modular training system that begins by developing a wide variety of basic skills, and builds on these to develop specialized skills required by industry and related fields including irrigation, wastewater treatment, municipal services, solar system installations, well pump installation and plumbing wholesale supply.

In the Plumbing & Pipe Trades Foundation program, you’ll develop skills and knowledge necessary for initial entry into the plumbing & pipe trades. You’ll focus on the first–year apprentice competencies that are common to all of the piping trades, working through common core, and plumbing and pipe trades specialty modules.

Practical projects will usually be done on-site either at the college or in cooperation with local industry.
