Gas Utility Construction and Service Program

Technical Diploma│1 Year│34 Credits│Beaver Dam Campus│Eligible for Financial Aid

WI Median Salary for Recent Graduates: $56,116

Demand for gas utility providers and technicians is growing faster than the supply of skilled workers. Get started in MPTC’s three-semester Gas Utility Construction and Service technical diploma and learn how to install, operate and maintain gas distribution systems.

Gas Utility students learn how to install underground natural gas distribution systems and residential and commercial natural gas service lines. Graduates are prepared to adhere to OSHA safety procedures, service gas appliances, and install gas piping for natural and propane gases. Students will also gain hands-on experience in the physically-demanding underground construction field preparing them for related careers in construction.

Students in the program work in MPTC’s newly-built Energy Education Center, which is a fully-functioning gas utility lab.

This program is a great fit if you enjoy working:

  • Outdoors
  • With your hands
  • With heavy equipment

“I chose to start the Gas Utility Construction & Service while I waited to start the EPD program because, I wanted to learn gas and all underground utility. If you’re working in the energy field having the knowledge of both programs will set me apart. I wanted to learn as much as I could over the two years here at MPTC. It’s all tied together. Plus it’s more affordable than attending a four-year college.”
