Program Description

Plumbers install, maintain, and repair many different types of pipe systems. Some of these systems carry water, dispose of waste, supply gas to ovens, or heat and cool buildings. Other systems, such as those in power plants, carry the steam that powers huge turbines.

Pipes also are used in manufacturing plants to move acids, gases, and waste by-products through the production process. Master plumbers on construction jobs may be involved with developing blueprints that show where all the pipes and fixtures will go. Their input helps ensure that a structure’s plumbing meets building codes, stays within budget, and works well with the location of other features, such as electric wires.

Plumbers install and repair water, drainage, and gas pipes in homes, businesses, and factories. They install and repair large water lines, such as those that supply water to buildings, and smaller ones, including ones that supply water to refrigerators. Plumbers also install plumbing fixtures—bathtubs, showers, sinks, and toilets—and appliances such as dishwashers, garbage disposals, and water heaters.

As a Plumber Apprentice, you will be working in residential and commercial buildings assembling, installing, and repairing water, drainage, and heating systsem. You will install water pipes, sinks, bathtubs, water heaters, and dishwashers. This program will satisfy the educational requirements to take the State Journeyman Exam. MATC’s Apprenticeship programs are composed of two parts: (1) on-the-job training and (2) classroom instruction. The on-the-job training is provided by an outside sponsor (employer) who exposes the apprentice to practical applications in all areas of a chosen trade. The classroom related instruction is organized and designed to provide the apprentice with knowledge of the theoretical and technical aspects of his or her trade. Classroom related instruction will be held at one of MATC’s Campuses.

720 hours over four (4) years.
