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 methodology to make them 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 will receive the necessary theory, safety training, and hands-on practice needed to make them the most sought-after plumbing apprentices in their field. You will learn safety training, rigging, and hoisting, pipe and fitting materials, pipe supports and hangers, tools and piping methods, plumbing fixtures, appliances and equipment, properties of water and heat transfer, trade calculations, construction drawings, codes, regulations and standards, drainage, venting and waste piping systems, sewage disposal systems, and water distribution systems.

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.
