The Grade 10 Plumbing and Heating program is designed to provide students with information regarding safety, beginning with Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) electrical safety and the safe use of power and hand tools. Students will examine the installation of drain, waste and venting, the use of copper tubing and steel piping and the installation of hangers and supports. Pipe sizing, residential fixtures and appliances and the proper use of fittings are also covered. Students will demonstrate the installation of drain, waste and vent (DWV) pipes using copper, steel, cast-iron, plastic, pipe and fittings. Students will perform both in-school and outside plumbing and heating projects for customers as it relates to the current curriculum and their skill level. They will also be able to install residential plumbing fixtures, thread pipe and explain basic drain cleaning.
