Table of Contents

Module ID 08101- Orientation to the Pipefitting Craft
Pipefitters work with many kinds of pipe, ranging
from small, half-inch piping to that which is three
or more feet in diameter. A pipefitter must know
how to work with threaded, grooved, and welded
piping systems and must be able to master a variety
of tools and equipment. (5 hours)


Module ID 08102 - Pipefitting Hand Tools
Pipefitters use hand tools to grip, level, fabricate,
cut, and bend pipe. Fabrication tools include
squares, clamps, gauges, wraparounds, and pins.
Vises and stands hold the work to free the crafter
to work with both hands; levels are used to ensure
that a pipe is level or plumb. Specialized tools are
used to cut, thread, bend, and flare pipe. (20 hours)


Module ID 08103- Pipefitting Power Tools
Pipefitters use power tools to cut, grind, thread,
and shape all types of materials. It is very important
to select the right tool for the job and make
sure it is in good working order before use. Specialty
tools, like threading machines and bevelers,
should only be used for the specific jobs they were
designed to perform. With power and pneumatic
tools, it is especially important to follow all operating
instructions and safety precautions because
they pose safety hazards. When used correctly,
these tools can greatly increase a pipefitter’s productivity.
(15 hours)

Module ID 29102- Oxyfuel Cutting
Oxyfuel cutting is a method for cutting metal that
uses an intense flame produced by burning a mixture
of a fuel gas and pure oxygen. It is a versatile
metal cutting method that has many uses on
job sites. Because of the flammable gases and open
flame involved, there is a danger of fire and explosion
when oxyfuel equipment is used. However,
these risks can be minimized when the operator is
well-trained and knowledgeable about the function
and operation of each part of an oxyfuel cutting outfit.
(17.5 hours)

Module ID 08105-  Ladders and Scaffolds
Ladders and scaffolds are some of the most important
tools on a job site. Used properly, they make a
pipefitter’s job much easier. Carelessness, however,
can be fatal. Common accidents like falling, being
struck by falling objects, and electrocution can be
avoided if safety precautions are followed. Considerations
for the type of ladder or scaffolding being
used, as well as environmental factors, personal
positioning, fall arrest systems, and proper assembly
and care of all equipment contribute to safe operations.
(12.5 hours)

Module ID 08106 - Motorized Equipment One
Pipefitters work with various types of motorized
equipment to speed up production. From smaller
items such as generators and compressors to larger
machinery such as forklifts and backhoe loaders, a
pipefitter must understand the capacities and limitations
of each item in order to work safely and
efficiently. This is because increased power means
increased hazards. Anyone operating motorized
equipment must be properly trained, and in some
cases certified, to use it. Always follow the recommended
safety precautions, manufacturer’s instructions,
and maintenance schedule. (10 hours)
