MATH-1012Applied Mathematics
More Information

In this course, you will learn mathematics as they apply to the trade. Topics covered include fractions, decimals, measurement, percent, square root, area (rectilinear, circular, and sphere), volume (rectilinear and cylinder), pressure in liquids/gases, ratio and proportion, and parallel, jumper, and rolling offset calculations (45º, 60º, and 22.5º).

PIPE-1004Piping & Materials - Practical
More Information

This course allows you to transfer theoretical knowledge underpinning piping, materials, and equipment to practical projects. Projects will give you practice in handling, measuring, cutting, and assembling common types of pipe according to code regulations. In addition, you will practice reaming and threading steel pipe using hand dies, cutters, reamers, and power threading machines. Joining copper pipe and fittings using hard and soft solders will also be done along with making flared and compression joints according to code regulations. Other procedures you will learn include how to groove steel and copper pipe for victaulic fittings and assemble victaulic and flanged materials. You will be shown specialty pipe such as sewage disposal and special waste pipe. Finally, you will practice using drain cleaning equipment.

PIPE-1006Blueprint Reading & Sketching
More Information

This course gives you practice in the interpretation of simple drawings and blueprints. As well, it trains you to produce 'on-the-job' sketches intended as a means of communication within the trade.

PIPE-1019Introduction to the Piping Trades and General Info
More Information

This course introduces you to staff members and informs you about relevant College policies and procedures, program curriculum, and future employers’ expectations in terms of punctuality, honesty, working habits, and compatibility with fellow employees. As well, you will get an overview of the following: tools of the trade along with the general purpose and care and maintenance of each tool, materials used in the trade along with the general uses and handling and storage of each type of material, safety precautions observed when working with tools and materials, and shop duties and clean-up rules.

PIPE-1027Piping and Materials Theory
More Information

This course introduces you to common piping materials and their correct uses, methods of assembling, supporting, handling, and storing, and the types of tools used with each. Students will also learn how each type of piping is to be joined, supported, and tested. Types of piping includes, but is not limited to, cast iron, black iron, galvanized iron, copper, lead, plastic, and glass.

PIPE-1044Regulations and Project Installations Theory
More Information

Interpretation of plumbing code, sizing of sewers, drains, stacks, vents, etc., drawing layouts, and constructing actual installations from layouts and blueprints.

PRAC-1015Project Installation Practical
More Information

This course is designed to give students practice in applying theoretical knowledge of installation through different roughing-in project installations, simple fixture installations, and assembling and testing drainage and vent piping in installations. Students also perform limited project layouts from blueprints, isometric and diagrammatic drawings.

SAFE-1011Safety and Rigging
More Information

This course will introduce the students to construction safety. The block will cover trenching, scaffolding, ladders, house-keeping, knots, basic rigging, crane signals, proper use of tools and equipment, and personal safety equipment (eye wear, hearing protection, footwear, clothing, hard hats, etc.).

SAFE-1028WHMIS
More Information

The Workplace Hazardous Materials System (WHMIS) is a system for ensuring that important information about hazardous products is communicated where products are used, stored and handled. This course provides Information necessary to understand and interpret information about hazardous products, including pictograms (symbols), labels and Safety Data Sheets.

SCIE-1015Applied Science
More Information

This course is designed to provide students with the underpinning theory of properties of water, metals and alloys; hydrodynamics, hydrostatics and pneumatics; and simple machines that are common in the plumbing trade. Students learn to relate topics such as states of matter, heat and temperature, sensible and latent heat, temperature conversion, specific heat, relative density, pH, hardness, M.A. efficiency, current, circuits, corrosion, conductivity, expansion, physical and mechanical properties of metals and alloys, hydraulics and pneumatic concepts to the plumbing field.

SEMR-9209General Safety Training
More Information

This General Safety Training (GST) teaches basic general safety content to arm students with the core information necessary for them to protect themselves in workplaces on all descriptions.
