LCCC to Offer New Plumber and Pipefitter Trades Degrees

Lorain County Community College has been approved to offer two new associate of technical studies trade degrees for plumbers and pipefitters. Those already in a United Association apprenticeship program or who are journeymen are eligible.

LCCC has developed the partnership with UA 42 and other UAs to offer the convenience of the LCCC courses to students already accepted to UAs as apprentices. Students will take general education requirements at LCCC in conjunction with their apprenticeships. Apprentices can receive 36 semester credit hours at LCCC toward ATS degrees as part of the five-year apprenticeship program.

“Working with LCCC allows local apprentices the option to pursue an associate degree at an affordable cost,” Local 42 Training Coordinator Russ Cromwell said.

“This program will let UA apprentices move forward in their careers and gain valuable skills for this in-demand field,” said Curt Mackiewicz, business manager for Local 42. “Having the associate degree will open doors for new opportunities.”

The Institutional Actions Council of the Higher Learning Commission approved the degree program on June 30. Training coordinators at the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program were consulted in the design of the program and curriculum development. Graduates will be prepared for entry-level roles.
