Plumbing and Pipefitting

Fast track your career in the skilled trades with Southeast College’s 16-week applied certificate program. Plumbers install, replace and maintain water and sewage systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Many are also licensed gas fitters.

The Plumbing and Pipefitting program provides the knowledge and skills you need for an entry level job. Your learning is practical and hands-on – and includes a two-week job placement that lets you test your skills in the real world.

Plumbing is a skilled trade. The more education and experience you get, the higher you can climb on the wage-earning ladder. A fourth-year journeyperson plumber can earn double the hourly wage of a first-year plumbing apprentice.

Applied certificate programs can give you a head-start on apprenticeship. To learn how to apply academic credit toward Level 1 of the Plumber apprenticeship program, contact the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC).
