An increase in construction at regional healthcare facilities and college laboratories has resulted in a need for local Plumbers and Pipefitters to become certified in new areas in order to participate on these projects. The WDI funded Medical Gas Brazing Certification training for the Rochester Plumbers/Pipefitters Local #13. The training included a 32-hour course in installation and maintenance of medical gas pipeline systems that prepares individuals to take both a written exam and a hands-on brazing exam. Candidates must be experienced, with at least four years of piping installation behind them. The certification course supported by WDI is expected to provide work opportunities for up to 20 individuals immediately.
