Sprinkler Fitter

Sprinkler fitters are a vital component in every building’s structure as sprinkler fitters are responsible for the installation, inspection and maintenance of automatic fire suppression systems.

The need for skilled sprinkler fitters is growing at a faster than average rate, and future sprinkler fitters can become trained and certified through SWPT’s apprentice program.

Sprinkler fitters trained through SWPT may be responsible for a range of responsibilities:

  • Installing residential systems
  • Installing and servicing underground pipe
  • Inspecting installation of equipment
  • Read blueprints to produce full-scale pipe systems
  • Select, cut, thread and hammer pipes to specifications
  • Perform National Fire Protection Association Inspections

From commercial buildings to hospitals and residences, properly functioning and reliable sprinkler systems save lives every day.
