Construct Structural Components Based on Blueprints
Fitters must be able to create and read blueprints for structural
systems and use their welding skills to craft these components from raw
Inspect Structural Systems based on Local and State Building Codes
Most fitters work on commercial or industrial piping systems, which
fall under the regulation of local and state business codes. They have
to be experts in the codes in order to self-inspect their work and make
sure everything is up to standard.
Fit Structural Components Together to Create Finished Systems
Using blueprints as a guide, fitters construct their components; the last task is assembling them to create the finished structure.
Troubleshoot and Repair Malfunctioning Systems
Fitters need to use their analytical and problem-solving skills to
run tests on structural systems to determine the root cause of the
malfunction. They then need to come up with a plan of action and use
their welding skills to replace the necessary components.
