Sheet Metal Fabrication

Riveting Sheet Metal

Learning to rivet is a crucial step to mastering sheet metal fabrication.

Comprehensive Sheet Metal Fabrication Training

The metallic structures course is integrated into the Aviation Maintenance Program at all of PIA’s locations.  Based on the reputation of PIA’s training in this subject matter, PIA has had organizations including the Pennsylvania Army Reserve National Guard, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, and several others request the advanced training of their maintenance technicians in this art form.

This continuing education offering is derived from two PIA courses that specialize in working with metallic structures. This hands-on course of study introduces the learner to the art of forming metal and expands upon the practical aspects of sheet metal construction and repair.
