Course description

Plumbing and Pipefitting for Plants and Buildings

Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, this two-day Plumbing and Pipefitting for Plants and Buildings training seminar provides in-house technicians and engineers the skills they need to keep plumbing and piping systems functioning at all times. It teaches students how to recognize and repair common problems found in commercial buildings…..without relying on outside contractors. Regardless of what type of plant or facility you operate in, plumbing and piping systems are critical to keeping your building and equipment up and running at all times. When pipes or plumbing are inoperable, it not only can affect the way an entire facility operates, but it may even shut parts of it down.
