PLUMBER

A plumber specializes in the installation and maintenance of the piping that runs in and under homes, businesses and more. The pipes carry the water necessary for comfortable living.

Most plumbers run their own businesses, working on an as-needed basis in their community.

Pay tends to be very high, particularly for self-employed plumbers, and educational requirements are lenient.

Plumbers work in a number of capacities, doing everything from commercial wellhead installations to residential pipe laying.

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Plumbers only need a high school diploma or GED to get started  or formal training program may not be required to become a plumber, it can aid advancement and teach students useful skills that can come in handy on the job. Many trade or technical schools and community colleges offer formal training programs for aspiring plumbers.

 Most of the training comes from an apprenticeship under a more experienced plumber than can last anywhere from a few months to several years.

Plumbers must be skilled at communicating with customers to determine where the problem is in the pipe and be able to navigate cramped and tight conditions.

A moderate amount of strength is required as pipes are often rusted and in locations where there is little leverage.

  • Installing, repairing and maintaining domestic, commercial, and industrial plumbing fixtures and systems.
  • Being able to work in confined spaces or at certain heights.
