Online Plumbing Degrees and Careers

Attending a qualified school to learn the skills for a plumbing job can lead you to a steady stream of work. A journeyman plumber, working alone or with a contractor, can often find more clients than time. For those people who like busy schedules, plumbing is a great career choice.

A journeyman plumber learns much more than how to fix clogs, leaky faucets, and malfunctioning water heaters. Most schools who offer training in this specialized field also train prospective plumbers how to interpret construction and architectural drawings, install, test and maintain plumbing systems, and take on other complex plumbing jobs.

In addition, most plumbing programs also train students to install and troubleshoot the plumbing systems for appliances such as water heaters, dishwashers, and other appliances.

The length of a plumbing program varies depending on your desired level. Most programs last between one and three years and bestow a certificate or degree.
