Plumbing Pre-Apprenticeship Program

The 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 training to make them successful apprentices. 

STC focusses on what matters most – HANDS ON!! We designed our Plumbing program with the contractor in mind.  After all, they are the ones that are going to hire you.  While it’s important to learn the theory, what’s going to make you shine as an apprentice is your ability to help the job move along. Our program ensures you are in the lab 60% of the time working with what matters most – YOUR HANDS!

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.

What’s in it for me?

Graduates of our Plumbing program leave with a full set of high end Klein Tools, including a tool belt and a Klein Tool Backpack, A Milwaukee drill and bit kit, PPE – hardhat, safety glasses and safety vest, safety certifications, and textbooks. But 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 in the plumbing trade.  A career as a plumber can provide a salary substantially higher than the national average.  Working in Construction will allow you to strike that work-life balance that we are all looking for.  A career in the trades allows you the time and will pay you the money you need to support your family, and at the same time pursue your hobbies and passions.


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 a contractor to hire you. Gone are the days of showing up to a contractor with no experience.  Contractors are looking for new hires that bring skills to the table and a genuine passion to work in the trades. 

By taking our pre-apprenticeship program you are showing your potential new employer that you are 1. Serious 2. Skilled & 3. Ready to Work!
