Coastal Releases Highly Anticipated Pipefitting Training Series

Virginia Beach, Va. – Coastal announces the release of its highly anticipated Pipefitting training series. The 11 courses are now available for free preview.

The new series is designed for employees and students with little to no pipefitting experience and covers the most common piping systems in use today. Training participants will learn about piping joints, fittings, offsets, flanges, gaskets, and accessories as well as how to measure pipe according to industry standards, thread pipe, and read piping drawings. Proper safety precautions are presented and stressed throughout.

"Coastal's Pipefitting series was produced in direct response to customer requests," says Dan McGonegle, manager of Coastal Skills Training. "On-the-job training and shadowing are often prolonged and expensive alternatives to gain the pipefitting skills required of today's workforce. As a result, our customers have repeatedly expressed their need for a quick and thorough solution to train employees and new hires on pipefitting techniques and practices."

The Pipefitting training series is currently available on DVD and will be released in Coastal's popular ClarityNet® HD online courseware in early June. Coastal's DVD delivery format includes content organized by learning objectives to facilitate classroom discussion and enable training administrators to cover specific training points. Coastal's ClarityNet® HD online courseware features pre- and post-testing, embedded questions, and interactive exercises. Training participants can complete the courses at their own pace and convenience and administrators can deliver and track the training with ease.

The series includes the following 11 courses:

  • Introduction to Pipefitting
  • Piping Systems and Standards
  • Pipe Fittings and Joints
  • Measuring Pipe and Drawings
  • Offsets
  • Manual and Electric Threaded Pipe

Other popular maintenance training topics include Fluid Power (33 training hours), Steam Traps (3 training hours), Power Transmission (14 training hours), HVAC&R (7 training hours), and Boiler Operation and Control (5 training hours).
