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 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 several federal, state, and local plumbing codes and assessment exams to become master plumbers.

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!
