Plumber Apprenticeship


The four levels of plumbing apprenticeship training are offered, as well as the two levels of the gas-fitting apprenticeship. Fourth year students are given instruction in natural gas code and installation and can acquire a Class GBEE gas-fitters licence as well as their interprovincial plumbing trades qualification.


Plumbers install, alter and repair the systems that keep water and waste disposal systems running, and that provide many basic amenities. 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 specifications.
