The Plumbing and Heating program prepares students to practise the trade of pipe fitter.
This trade is part of the building services sector and includes two specialties: plumbing and heating. Generally speaking, pipe fitters install, modify, repair and maintain plumbing and heating systems. More specifically, they work on pipes in water supply and drainage systems. They also work on pipes and other components of hydronic, steam, forced air, oil, radiant, natural gas and propane heating systems. They are interested in new technologies, in particular renewable energy (e.g. geothermic, solar).

This section identifies the modules or course codes for the actual programs of study in adult general education that are specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics. Functional prerequisites includes the successful completion of specific prerequisites as well as the general development test (TDG). When a DVS doesn't require specific prerequisites in language of instruction or in mathematics, a dash ( - ) is displayed in the appropriate cell. For programs that lead to an AVS, specific prerequisites and the TDG do not apply (N/A).
