Plumber Pre-Apprentice Program

The Plumber Pre-Apprentice Program at the Skilled Trades College of Canada was designed to give students the right mix of theoretical and hands-on practical experience to make them into successful apprentices. A plumber is a tradesperson who specializes in installing and maintaining systems used for potable (drinking) water, sewage, and drainage in plumbing systems. Some of the duties that a plumber is required to perform are: installing, repairing and maintaining pipes, fixtures, and other plumbing equipment; welding, connecting, and leak testing; estimating; interpreting blueprints; supervising apprentices; and more.
 
Our graduates receive the skills, training, and experience needed to make them the most sought after plumbing apprentices in their field – because they are qualified, competent and accomplished with practical hands-on training. This course will provide you with safety training, introduction to plumbing, theory, plumbing code and blueprints, math for plumbers, and plumbing practical techniques. You will learn your water supply, drainage systems, as well as work with numerous piping equipment.

What’s in it for me?

Graduates of our Plumbing program leave with a full set of Klein Tools, personal protective equipment, safety certifications, textbooks, and most importantly, the skills and knowledge of a second year apprentice.  After completing our program, you will have the confidence and hands-on experience needed to start working and become an asset to any company.

Why become a Plumber?

Plumbers are very well respected in the construction industry.  It takes a very specialized set of skills and knowledge to work as a Plumber.  A career as a Plumber can provide a salary substantially higher than the national average.

Why a Pre-Apprenticeship?

Receiving the necessary training from a pre-apprentice program can mean having an apprenticeship or not. Remember, as an apprentice you are asking someone to hire you. If you do not have the necessary training, you most likely will not be selected as an apprentice, as they will most likely go with someone that already understands the basic plumbing fundamentals. This program not only provides you all the necessary training you need to start your career in the plumbing trade but it will also provide you a much better chance at receiving an apprenticeship with an employer.
