Apprentice Plumber

Certificate Description

The Apprentice Plumber program is excellent for those individuals who have an interest in expanding their knowledge as it relates to their individual trade.

Students may train for Apprenticeship status in the State of Utah. Areas of emphasis are national and state code, material requirements, practical mathematics required in the trade, and other essential subject areas.

The Apprentice Plumber program is composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training provided by a sponsor who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all phases of a particular craft, and (2) classroom-related instruction designed to provide the apprentice with knowledge of theoretical and technical aspects of their craft. Total completion of an apprenticeship program will take up to four years, depending upon the craft.
