The 1-year Plumbing Technician program prepares students for careers as entry-level plumbing technicians in residential, commercial, or industrial fields. Students study safety, fittings, power tools, drains, backflow, venting, and water distribution systems. Training includes the installation of piping, fixtures, valves, water heaters, and professional development for the plumbing industry. The Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) is used and applied throughout the program, and the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries may recognize this one year of training toward the (01) journey level certification.
Additionally, students study plumbing fundamentals, math and blueprint reading, finish and advanced plumbing as well as professional development in an effort to create well-rounded technicians. Halfway through the program, students are provided an opportunity to participate in an externship where they begin to identify their desired work environment and gain real-world experience prior to entering the workforce. From sanitary to sewer and water supply systems, there are many aspects to the trade that can allow you to install and service day-to-day systems such as showers, sinks, water heaters, and more.
