Started From The Bottom, Now He’s Becoming A Licensed Plumber

Becoming a licensed plumber in the state of Indiana isn't just something you can decide to do overnight. Luckily, for homeowners who need plumbing services, it takes a great deal of training and schooling to become a plumber.

There are three different types of plumbers: apprentice, journeyman, and master.

A plumbing apprentice must be enrolled in a 4-year approved plumbing apprenticeship program and be working full time as a plumber under the direction of a licensed plumber.

After completing an apprenticeship, the plumber must pass a test in order to become a licensed journeyman, which is a plumber who has completed their apprenticeship.

The highest level is a master plumber. This is a plumber who has completed up to 4-5 years of additional work experience. They must pass a number of federal, state, and local plumbing code and assessment exams to become a master plumber.

We are so proud to announce that one of our technicians, Jonathan, has completed his apprenticeship and is now preparing to take the test to become a journeyman!
