The Apprenticeship Plumber/Gasfitter Program is designed to train participants to plan, install, and service plumbing systems, fixtures, piping equipment, and controls. These piping systems may be used to transport water, waste, gases, or hot liquids. Due to the nature of the work of a Plumber/Gasfitter, it is imperative that safety be taught on a continuous basis throughout this program.
This program outline is based on the NWT/Alberta Plumber/Gasfitter Apprenticeship Course Outline (2005-06) issued by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).
The goal of apprenticeship training is to develop competent Journeypersons through a combination of on-the-job and technical training. The Plumber/Gasfitter Program at Aurora College provides the first of four levels of technical training.
