Sheila’s Answer

Hi Sabrina:

Qualified plumbers are always in demand. Residential specialists work in customers' homes, handling the full range of plumbing emergencies. Commercial plumbers are often trained to install and repair large pipes and fixtures in office buildings and hotels. Some plumbers focus on very specialized areas, like fire-suppression systems. Regardless of specialty, all plumbers must have years of training and experience before they can become high-paying licensed journeymen. Here are some steps to become a plumber . . .

• Join a local Plumber's Union
• Enroll in a Trade School
• Contact Plumbing Contractors that provide Apprenticeship Programs
• Obtain Certification from your State

Best of luck to you!

Vicky’s Answer

In order to be a plumber you must take a course at trade school in order to receive your plumber's license. Then after that you can either get job assignments as a self employed plumber or join a plumber's union where you receive benefits/pension and will have to pay union dues.
