Welcome! My name is Andy Tipton. I am the Pipefitter instructor for the Local Union 441 Apprenticeship Training School. I began my apprenticeship in 1996. I carry a Building Trades Journeyman Pipefitter card as well as a United Assoication Welder Certification card. 

The Pipefitter curriculum includes, but is not limited to, related sciences and mathematics, heavy rigging, signal person training, copper and alloy tube bending, power and process piping layout, drafting and installation, oxyfuel cutting, shielded metal arc welding. All courses are hands on. There is no substitution for union skilled labor.
