Journey Worker Computer Aided Drafting (JCAD) is a structured, two-year program for journey workers to pursue training in software to create, design and visualize efficient piping systems.

JCAD classes offer a blend of hybrid learning of both in-person and online training. This hybrid approach prepares students for the predominantly remote nature of their future roles but ensures students receive live instruction through in-person sessions.

The JCAD program plays a vital role in meeting the increasing demand for CAD operators within the piping industry by providing experienced journey-level plumbers and pipefitters.
