Plumbing Code and Theory
Would you like too become a licensed plumber? According to the Massachusetts State Board of Plumbers and Pipefitters, before you take the licensing exam you must have an apprentice license, 5 years of on-the-job training, 550 hours (110 per year) of classroom instruction in plumbing code and theory from an approved school, and work for a master plumber. For each year in which an apprentice obtains 110 clock hours of education, that apprentice must accrue 1700 clock hours of qualifying work experience with some exceptions:
- An unlicensed individual may complete Tier 1 of the education requirement prior to obtaining an apprentice license.
- A licensed apprentice may complete Tier 1 and Tier 2 in a single calendar year.
Requirements are subject to change at any time by the State of MA. All students must bring a current MA Plumbing and Gas Code Book to all classes. Approved school by the MA Board of State Examiners of Plumbers and Gas Fitters.
