The apprenticeship program is for a 5-year period and requires 9,000 on-the-job hours of work. Additionally, all apprentices attend 216 hours of related instruction for each year while in the program.

Pipefitters and Steamfitters may be commonly grouped together, but each represents a specialized occupation. The primary difference is in the material transported through the pipe systems. Pipefitters work with both low-pressure and high-pressure systems that are used in heating and cooling; manufacturing; and electricity generation. Steamfitters specialize in liquids and gases that are under high-pressure. Their work can be more dangerous than a Pipefitter at times, such as when working with high-pressure gas.
