Welding School Adds Pipefitting Program - 5/16/2012
Tulsa Welding School announced a new pipefitting training program to fill the nationwide need for more skilled workers. David Gilliam, director of education at Tulsa Welding School says, “According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook from the US Department of Labor, the employment of plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters is projected to grow 26% from 2010 to 2020, faster than average for all occupations. As such, job opportunities are expected to be good as some employers continue to report difficulty finding qualified professionals. In addition, many workers are expected to retire over the next 10 years, which will result in more job openings."
The new Pipefitting training program takes 6½ months to complete and prepares students to pursue opportunities as pipefitters, pipe layers, plumbers, boilermakers and steamfitters. Tulsa Welding School's hands-on pipefitting training also includes courses in blueprint reading, math, safety and plumbing codes and standards.
