When piping up the shower waste, it's inevitable you willl need to cut the pipe shorted at some point.

When I was training to be an electrian, I used something similar to these to cut conduit. Would I be able to use it to cut waste pipe?

Conduit is PVC. You can cut DWV pipe the same way. Be aware that that tool has a maximum diameter of 42 mm. Your shower drain may be larger than that.
