The Piping Training Systems Lab is based on hands-on training program designed to train students for careers as pipe fitters and piping maintenance technicians.
The main learning objectives are the reading of piping schematics, calculation of pipe lengths, fabrication, installation and testing of piping circuits made of galvanized steel pipes, hoses, PVC pipes, and copper tubes. The systems can also be used to teach students how to enforce the safety rules to be followed when working at industrial sites.

The Piping Training System faithfully reproduces an industrial environment where students can develop their skills in the fabrication, installation and testing of industrial piping systems, including pipes, tubing, and hoses. The training program is designed to train students for careers as pipe fitters and piping maintenance technicians.
The system can be used to teach how to perform maintenance on industrial piping systems, as well as enforce the safety rules followed at industrial sites. Due to its modular design, the Piping Training System can be configured to fit various training needs. A versatile mobile workstation is the basis of the system. All components and tools are industrial grade for realistic training and durability.
