|Field of Study:||Plumbing Technology/Plumber
|Description:||Plumbers assemble, install and repair the piping, fittings, and fixtures, fabricate water distribution, and drain, waste and vent systems. All newly installed plumbing systems must conform to the Ontario Building Code. The installations are inspected and approved by municipal inspectors; therefore, plumbers must know and apply the regulations governing plumbing installations.
Prior to entering the in-class program, plumbing apprentices typically have worked in the field for approximately one year. The in-class program consists of three 8-week levels of 30 hours per week. The three levels are Basic, Intermediate and Advanced plumbing.
