How to Select a Plumbing Trade School
Plumbers normally obtain their training through apprenticeship programs or through vocation schools with local contractor affiliations. Plumbing associations, such as the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association, sponsor many apprenticeship programs and are good sources of information when choosing plumbing schools.
Consider the following also when looking for plumbing trade schools:
- Class content should include codes and regulations, blueprint reading, math, physics, chemistry and safety, plumbing system design, and installation and maintenance.
- Plumbing trade and vocational programs should offer classroom instruction along with on-the-job training and apprenticeship opportunities.
