PIPE TECHNICIAN

The state of Louisiana is beginning to experience a major surge in industrial construction projects. In addition to several significant recruiting wins by the Department of Economic Development (LED), the state’s improved business climate and the low price of natural gas are prompting companies to invest in new plant construction and expansions of existing plants.  The potential for a shortage of skilled industrial construction workers to build and maintain the plants and construction projects in the state of Louisiana has prompted public and private groups from around the state to convene to try to address the issue. 

The Pipe Technician program is designed to prepare students for industry employment and/or certification as an expert level welder. Students will receive advanced instruction on SMAW open root and stainless steel groove welds, GMAW and FCAW pipe welds, and GTAW carbon steel, low alloy, and stainless steel pipe. Minimum three years of experience. Acceptance based on performance test.

Students will have the ability to:

  •  Perform all tasks in the Welding Technician curriculum.
