Program Overview

This one-year certificate program is a study of the plumbing trade, residential and commercial, as practiced in the state of Maine. Blueprint reading and sketching for plumbers will be covered, combined with working drawings, to learn the technique of sketching pipe layouts isometrically, and blueprint interpretation.

The proper use and safety methods of hand and power tools will be covered as the course progresses. Mock-ups will be used for actual piping and fixture layout, allowing students the opportunity to design, build and test plumbing installations. Graduates are eligible to take the State of Maine Journeyman’s Plumbing exam. Upon passing the State exam, they are issued journeymen-in-training licenses. Upon accumulating an additional 2000 hours, under the supervision of a journeyman or master plumber, the license is up-graded to that of a journeyman.
