: A licensed plumber, though they are great in number, are often looked down upon. Why, exactly is this case? Perhaps it is because most people don't like to think about that which those in the plumber service have made their personal business.

Fixing Your Messes since the Invention of Toilets

Being a licensed plumber is one of the most important, though often underrated professions in the world. After all, licensed plumbers will never go out of business and everyone depends on them. Though it may be tempting to do a job yourself, it is always better to find a plumber who knows what they're doing.

A licensed plumber , though they are great in number, are often looked down upon. Why, exactly is this the case? Perhaps it is because most people don't like to think about that which those in the plumber service have made their personal business. Maybe it's because they are considered dirty as their job does imply a certain amount of literal filth. It could even be because people think that being in the plumbing service is a horrible job to get into for the money, which isn't the case as plumbers are generally quite well paid. Regardless, the fact remains that licensed plumbers are very useful and society, as a whole, needs them.

It is actually surprisingly difficult to become a licensed plumber, the United Kingdom version of this title being a Master Plumber, and this is not only due to the United State's lack of nation-wide federal laws to establish licensing for plumbers. In fact, becoming a licensed plumber takes over five years of training! Just think about that the next time you think about your plumber. After all, five years of job training would be even longer than your average full time college degree if one were to be going to school for their bachelor's degree.

To become a licensed plumber first one would need to apply to a tech school and research local plumbing companies to see whether or not they are hiring for an opening for an apprentice plumber. By going to tech school you may have a better chance of working for a larger company. After that, you would want to work towards your journeyman license, or lic for short, and you would be allowed to work under an actual journeyman until receiving your lic. Make sure to keep track of hours since most states require 580 hours of school and five years of on-the-job training. After completing everything else the final challenge would be to pass all the required tests. If you failed, don't worry study and try again in six months when you're once again eligible to take the test.

As you can see, becoming a licensed plumber isn't as easy as it sounds so think about that next time you need to find a plumber or use your regular plumber services. Even though it's difficult to become a plumber, it's still easy to find plumber services in all areas of the United States.
