Plumbing Technology

  • Welcome

    What would life be like without plumbers? This industry needs skilled men and women to work in both commercial and residential settings completing tasks such as the installation, maintenance and servicing of plumbing fixtures and systems for drinking water, drainage waste and vent, and heating. By investing just two semesters of your time, you can earn a diploma and receive one year credit toward an apprentice license.

    Overview

    This program will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to design, install and repair residential and commercial plumbing systems. A large part of the job involves the ability to understand building blueprints to assess layouts of plumbing systems and water supply. You will learn plumbing codes and theory, safety and the proper use of tools. You’ll also gain a large amount of hands-on experience that involves lab assignments. Beginning in fall 2020, you will gain real-world experience by plumbing the student-built house on the Milford Campus.

    Employment Outlook

    Examination Management Services Inc. reports that the plumbing profession is a high-paid occupation in the construction industry. For jobs as plumbers, pipe fitters and steamfitters, starting wages range from $17 to $18 per hour. The job outlook for the next 10 years is projected to be 21 percent higher than all other industries and jobs. Many companies have an accelerated promotion program for outstanding employees who show the skills necessary to build their company’s business.

    Diploma Programs with Reduced Financial Aid Eligibility

    Federal regulations [34CFR 668.8(k) and (l)] mandate that programs not leading to a degree, and all the courses within the program are not fully transferable to a higher degree, can only partially be paid by federal student aid. A specific federal formula determines the number of credits allowed to be paid by financial aid. At SCC, those programs and the number of credits eligible for federal financial aid are:

    So, what does this mean?

    If you enroll in one of the above-mentioned diploma programs, federal financial aid will not pay for the entire program. You will be responsible for the tuition and fees for the number of credits listed in the “Number of Credits Not Paid” column.

    Please refer to the SCC catalog for current program requirements.
