Training That's Unique
The Arizona Pipe Fitting Trades Apprenticeship Training Center is recognized throughout the United States for its innovative, one-on-one training program -- a program designed to train you as a pipe trades professional. The basic piping trades we offer are: plumbing, pipefitting and heating, ventilation and air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R).
It's Not the Same Trade Anymore
Times have changed. People thought of plumbers and pipefitters as being bent under a sink with bad teeth and sloppy mannerisms. However, today, the pipe trades are made up of highly educated and certified craftspersons that help design and construct the complex systems and "nerve centers" that run business and commerce across Arizona. Now it's your chance to become a leader in the pipe trades industry, make a great paycheck and accumulate the benefits that will serve you well through life.
