Plumber

Note: This trade is transitioning to a Pan-Canadian Harmonized program, so it is important that Apprentices understand how that impacts their program path. Details on the transition can be found via the Industry Training Authority link, or contact your trainer for the most current updates.

Plumbers install, alter and repair the systems that keep our water and waste disposal systems running, and that provide many of the basic amenities we rely on day-to-day. They also install specialized systems such as medical gas, process piping, compressed air, water conditioners, fuel piping, sewage and water treatment, and storage and flow equipment. They read and interpret blueprints and project specifications. Plumbers also select the type and size of pipe required for a project and measure, shape and join pipes according to the appropriate specifications. They sometimes alter structures to accommodate the pipes.

Plumber is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program.

Recommendations

The following education is recommended: Grade 12 or equivalent preferred, including English 12; Algebra 11 or Trade Math 11; Physics 11 or Science & Tech 11.

 

The Apprenticeship Program comprises Levels 1-to-4 of progressive technical training, with each Level taking 7-8 weeks (210-240 hours) to complete. In addition, apprentices are required to accumulate 6,300 hours of work-based training.

 

A Foundation Program can jump-start your career without employer sponsorship by supplying the knowledge and skills to enter directly at Level 2, after 21 weeks of training (refer to Industry Training Authority for alternative paths into the occupation).
