Plumbers install, alter, and repair the systems that keep our water disposal systems running, and that provide many of the basic amenities we rely on day-to-day. They read and interpret blueprints and project specifications. Plumbers also select the type and size of pipe required for a project and measure, shape, and join pipes according to the appropriate specifications. They sometimes alter structures to accommodate the pipes. Plumber is a nationally designated trade under the Inter-provincial Red Seal program.
The program is competency based and classes and shop time are scheduled Monday-Friday. The 21 week program delivers the complete theoretical and practical outcomes of the provincially accredited Level 1 Plumbing Apprentice Program. Students accumulate 375 hours towards practical training hours.
Upon completion students will be able to work towards becoming a Journeyman Plumber.
