PROGRAM INFORMATION

We pride ourselves in being ourselves...Professionals on the job and in the classroom.  Since 1974 we have "Educated generations of Skilled Plumbers" and the success of the hard working men and women that learned from us over the years can attest to that.  Through lecture and hands-on training, we teach Apprentice Plumbers the plumbing code, and sharpen the career skills the job site requires of them each day

To be enrolled in our program, Apprentice Plumbers must first be employed by a Registered Master Plumber and at least 18 Years of Age.

To become a licensed Journeyman Plumber in Allegheny County, apprentices must successfully complete 576 hours in the classroom, along with 8,000 hours in the field working under direction of an Allegheny County Registered Master Plumber. Following this requirement will enable the Apprentice to take their Journeyman Exam at the end of their fourth year with us.

While working as an Apprentice Plumber, the Apprentice is required to attend school, and have a current Apprentice Card issued by the Allegheny County Health Department.  Apprentices who do not attend school will no longer be valid.

*Apprentice Card Renewals are included with tuition once per year.
