    WARETOWN, NEW JERSEY- Ocean County Vocational Technical School (OCVTS) has announced a new program offering for September 2009. Plumbing will be offered at the OCVTS Waretown Center 423 Wells Mills Road. Plumbing will complement the full range of construction-related programs which include Electrical Trades/Integrated Cabling; Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration; Building Construction Technology; Welding; and Custom Cabinetmaking, currently offered at OCVTS.

    The US Department of Labor reports “Pipelayers, plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters comprise one of the largest and highest paid construction occupations. Job opportunities are expected to be good as demand for skilled pipelayers, plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is expected to outpace the supply of workers well trained in this craft.”

    This 900-hour two-year course is open to high school students on a shared-time basis, which means students spend part of their school day at OCVTS and the remainder at their home school.

    The program is also open to adults interested in training for a new career.

    Upon successful completion of this two-year program students are encouraged to continue their training in the OCVTS Adult Education Apprenticeship Training program where students can receive advanced placement in the Plumbing Apprentice classes.

    For more information high school students should contact their guidance counselor for application information. Adults can contact an admissions representative at 732.473.3100 x 3144.
