Plumbing Apprenticeship Program

Our Plumbing Apprenticeship Program is a 4-year, 8000 hour accredited apprenticeship course that provides a combination of on-the-job training (OJT) and related training instruction (RTI).  The RTI classroom segment has face-to-face classes every Tuesday from 5-9 p.m. and offers a hybrid learning option as well.  The program prepares the individual to read blueprints and safely, correctly, and efficiently install and maintain plumbing systems. These plumbing systems include underground water supply, stormwater, sewer drainage, fixture installation and waste and vent piping both inside and outside of buildings, residential and service plumbing. A student can earn OSHA certification and NCCER Core, Plumbing Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 certifications. Upon completion of the apprenticeship program, apprentices are awarded an Apprenticeship Completion Certificate from the Florida Department of Education, Division of Workforce Development.  These credentials are recognized and respected by the federal, state and relevant industries.

  • Must have a high school diploma or GED Equivalent; or be co-enrolled in a GED program.
