Karin’s Answer

Hi Kane,

You can learn to be a plumber by doing a 4-year apprenticeship with a plumber. If you look on job search sites like Indeed or LinkedIn for appreticeships, you can find some in your area. Or you can look up plumbing businesses in your area and ask if they are taking on apprentices. As an apprentice, you should get paid.

Alternatively, some trade schools and community colleges offer courses and degrees in plumbing.

You'll probably need a license to be a journeyman plumber. Check the regulations for your state. Get some more experience working for someone, then get a license as master plumber. In the long(ish) run you can aim to start your own business.

I hope this helps! I left a couple of links for you below for more information! Happy plumbing!

Do you need a college degree to become a plumber? This field does not require a college degree. Aspiring plumbers must complete a supervised plumbing apprenticeship to earn a license.
