How Long is a Pipefitter Apprenticeship

Pipefitters are skilled craftspeople who build, patch, rebuild, stack, fabricate, and test pipe systems.

They usually start as juniors or apprentices. Pipework, valves, and pumps are often found in piping networks.

A pipefitter apprenticeship curriculum incorporates on-the-job experience at an engineering business with theoretical instruction at a college or university.
