Plumbing and Refrigeration (AOS)

Learn a valuable set of skills to apply in a variety of fields with our two-year Plumbing and Refrigeration degree program.

The program consists of the first-year courses from the one-year certificate program in Plumbing, Heating and Pipefitting and the courses from the one-year Refrigeration and Air Conditioning certificate program.

Plumbers install and repair the water, waste disposal, drainage, and gas systems in homes and commercial and industrial buildings. Plumbers also install plumbing fixtures - bathtubs, showers, sinks, and toilets - and appliances such as dishwashers and water heaters.
