Gas utility servicers install and repair gas meters, regulators and appliances. They test and examine pipelines and equipment to locate leaks, faulty pipe connections and to determine the pressure and flow of gas. They dismantle meters and regulators and replace defective pipes, thermocouples, thermostats and valves.
This work is done both inside and outside. Utility servicers work with and around gas and electricity. Jobs may involve some fire suppression and traffic control work. Workers in this field use hand tools, manometers, voltmeters and combustible gas indicators.
This program is only open to employees of training agents registered with the local apprenticeship committee.
