Duties of the Industrial PipeFitter

A specialized PipeFitter Industrial Pipefitter, he is in charge
of all activities related to the construction, installation and repair of pipelines.

Studies and plans the project to be carried out, takes measurements in the field, conducts on-site surveys, selects and collects the necessary material following the project specifications, traces the pipes to be processed, makes bevels on the pipe, assembles pipes with other pipes, flanges, fittings, valves so as to construct pipeline lines, and assembles the prefabricated pipes in the plant.

Find a job as
Industrial Tubist

The Industrial Tubist is one of the most sought-after jobs in the world of work

There are few skilled Industrial Tubists, and they find work easily and quickly, because the tubist is widely used in various fields of application in engineering. 

The pipe fitter or Pipefitter builds and assembles pipelines for petroleum refineries, power plants, food plants, pharmaceutical plants, builds pipelines for aqueducts, gas pipelines, oil pipelines, works for public and private utility companies, builds systems for hospitals, ships, construction, heating systems, ventilation, etc.

It is a very well-paid job, the salary varies depending on whether you are a construction pipefitter in the shop, or an assembly pipefitter in the yard-plant. 

The pipe fitter normally works in tandem with the welder, another highly sought-after occupation in the job market, the pipe fitter pairs pipes or pieces of a pipe line and the welder welds them together. 

There is a difference between an industrial plumber who builds, assembles, and installs industrial and plant piping and a civil plumber who instead works only in the civil construction field. 

Our Industrial Tubist Course is the most comprehensive and practical in Italy.

Industrial Tubist Salary

The Tubist is a well-paid job, mainly because it is difficult for companies to find.

 The tubist earns salary based on the skills he or she possesses, experience, length of work contracts, whether he or she is a Junior or experienced Tubist, whether he or she is a shop prefabrication tubist, or whether he or she is a site assembly tubist.

In general, the average tubist in Italy earns between:
- 1650€ net ( for a Junior Tubist )
- up to 3000€ net ( for a full Tubist with experience ).
