Area of Study: Certificate of Proficiency in Plumbing
Degree/Certificate: Certificate of Proficiency
Students must be currently working in a registered apprenticeship program in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, and the United Association (UA).
The apprenticeship program prepares the student to earn a journey-level status in Plumbing. A five-year apprenticeship emphasizes the skill set required to be a journey-level plumber.
The Certificate of Proficiency provides academic recognition of the accomplishment of the journey-level worker. An apprentice will learn to install, repair, maintain and service piping systems, plumbing systems and equipment used for drinking (potable) water distribution, sanitary storm water systems and waste disposal. Additional opportunities for plumbers can include technical installations for Medical Gas, Hydronic in-floor heating, Solar Panels, Heat Pumps, Cross-Connection Control and many other systems necessary for the health and safety of the general public.
