Approved for 14 Hours – Renewal Training Credit (RTC)
This two-day seminar focuses on the fundamentals of pipefitting. It is an introductory seminar designed for maintenance personnel who have relatively little or no previous pipefitting experience. Topics include: reading single-line and isometric diagrams; piping types and dimensions; uses and types of fittings; thread types; and pipe length determination. Participants practice pipefitting skills by reproducing actual piping runs from an isometric drawing.
