Aboveground Pipe Installation

This course reviews the necessary planning and communication regarding the measurement, calculation, cutting, and assembly tasks involved installing aboveground pipe. Aboveground lines do not have the advantage of being supported by the earth of a trench, as with buried pipe, and they often must be raised to avoid obstructions. Because of these two factors, understanding when, where, and how to apply fundamental pipefitting skills becomes more important than ever.

Butt Welds

Most large, aboveground, industrial piping systems are crafted through a combination of butt welds and bolt-ups. This course reviews butt weld materials, preparing components for welding, and how to align piping components. The right tools and jigs are central to getting the alignment correct for the first tack, and for determining and adjusting for small differences in the actual shapes and sizes of pipes and fittings.

Drawings and Blueprints

Pipefitters need to understand how to read piping and instrumentation drawings (P&IDs), which are also known as blueprints or site plans. These schematic diagrams show process flows, functions, equipment, pipelines, valves, instruments, and controls needed to operate the system. In this course, pipefitters will learn to read, understand, and communicate what is detailed on various types of drawings, and how to create sketches for use in the field.

Field Routing and Vessel Trim

Field routing and vessel trimming require pipefitters to understand more than pipe assembly. Their decisions play a key role in ensuring the safety and overall success of a job. From initial evaluation of the site and piping run to the selection of the proper erection equipment and vessel trim components, this part of their job requires them to have a thorough understanding of the competencies and skills taught in this course

Oxyfuel Cutting

Welders cut metals using several different technologies. Oxyfuel cutting, an extremely versatile method, produces a very hot flame by burning a fuel gas with pure oxygen. Since the method involves flammable gases and open flames, however, it’s quite hazardous. This course introduces the method, its equipment, procedures, and safety practices.

Pipefitting Hand Tools

This course identifies the different hand tools pipefitters use to grip, level, fabricate, cut, and bend pipe. Fabrication tools include squares, clamps, gauges, wraparounds, and pins. Vises and stands hold the work to free the crafter to work with both hands. Specialized tools are used to cut, thread, bend, and flare pipe. Using the correct tool – in a safe and appropriate manner – allows a crafter to skillfully complete the job.

Pipefitting Math and Bluebook

Pipefitters use geometry, trigonometry, and algebra to calculate takeouts, to lay out angled cuts, and to determine the lengths of the sides of figures and offsets. This course covers knowing which formula to use and at what time. Pipefitting calculators are specially designed to assist with each of these functions, yet it is still important to know the manual process for times when equipment is not available.

Pipefitting Power Tools

Pipefitters use power tools to cut, grind, thread, and shape all types of materials. Specialty tools, like threading machines and bevelers, should only be used for the specific jobs they were designed to perform. This course reviews operating instructions and safety instructions for power tools, including pneumatic tools. When used correctly, these tools can greatly increase a pipefitter’s productivity.

Piping Systems and Equipment Tests

Once a piping system is installed, it must be tested before it’s ready to use. Like many pipefitting activities, testing introduces a number of hazards that must be addressed. This course reviews precautions to be taken to reduce the known risks and how to perform these tests: hydrostatic, steam blow, or head pressure testing. When conducting a test, the use of a test report is essential to guiding the overall process.

Socket Welds

Socket weld piping is quick and relatively easy to fit properly. This course covers socket weld alignment and how to read line drawings. Symbols are used to denote specific types of connections in piping systems; these are used in conjunction with math applications for determining pipe lengths between fittings and preparing and aligning pipe and fittings.

Threaded Pipe

Threaded piping systems vary greatly based on the variety of materials used for the job, so pipefitters must understand appropriate processes and procedures for each. This course covers topics from reading and interpreting drawings to making up the pipe and fittings. Threaded pipe fabrication calls for careful attention to details of materials selection and measurement.

Valve Function

Valves are the steering wheels, brakes, and switches of pipe systems. Some valves function as on-and-off flow controls, while others regulate the amount of flow. Some divert flow from one direction to another. The proper installation of valves is a critical pipefitting skill. This course covers how to install and use valves properly; it is essential to understand the function of the valve and its characteristics.
