The Plumbing and Heating program prepares students to practise the trade of pipe fitter.
This trade is part of the building services sector and includes two specialties: plumbing and heating. Generally speaking, pipe fitters install, modify, repair and maintain plumbing and heating systems. More specifically, they work on pipes in water supply and drainage systems. They also work on pipes and other components of hydronic, steam, forced air, oil, radiant, natural gas and propane heating systems. They are interested in new technologies, in particular renewable energy (e.g. geothermic, solar).

Persons holding a Secondary School Diploma or its recognized equivalent, for example, an Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary V studies, or a postsecondary diploma such as the Diploma of College Studies or a Bachelor's degree
