Pipe Fitting
This program is a joint venture between Bishop State and Build Mobile’s work force welder training program. The training offered covers subjects like ship fitting, pipe fitting and some very advanced pipe welding classes. It also has many rare but needed classes in welding exotic pipe like copper nickel and Flux cored arc welding with ceramic backing tape for advanced students. The pipe welding classes cover pipe ranging from schedule 10 to schedule 80 in Stick, MIG, FCAW and TIG.This program really hits hard when it comes to getting ready for a job. Many of the subjects taught here are learned by most welders only after years of experience (including myself). The best part about this school is that is takes everyone from the student that has never welded to the journeyman welder who needs training to upgrade their skills. For journeyman welders it is an open entry open exit program that cost $8.00 an hour per 40 hours of instruction.The bottom line is this school offers what many high paying welding jobs require and very few schools offer. It is one of the few programs that can get you ready to work anywhere from shipyards to nuclear power plants! As a new welder it would be well worth relocating to get the training that is offered at this school.
