Pipefitting Apprenticeship at ABC Keystone

ABC is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Chapter’s new Pipefitting Apprenticeship program. Starting in September 2020, Pipefitting curriculum will be added for members who want the choice of having a pipefitter registered with the Department of Labor & Industry.

Our team is planning combined classes for Levels/Years 1 and 2, and then students will separate into their specific trade classes for Levels/Years 3 and 4. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the plumbing and pipefitting will be combined in the classroom using a combination of NCCER plumbing and pipefitting curriculums. We look forward to starting this program and meeting the needs of our ABC members.

  • 10 Hour OSHA Certification
