Plumbing Technicians are Integral to the Home Services Industry!

People give little thought to the plumbing system in their home until the day something goes wrong and they can’t take a hot shower or flush the toilet. In these times, homeowners rely on the skills and knowledge of a plumber who can fix their issue.

When you become a certified plumbing technician, you become a very important part of the home services industry!

Plumbers have a lot of responsibilities. Beyond unclogging a drain or pipes, they also install toilets and water heaters, and help maintain the entire system in your home. When a pipe bursts from freezing cold temperatures, who do you call? Your local plumber! When your basement starts to fill with water, who do you call? Your local plumber!

You could say plumbers are like modern day superheroes that come to all of our rescues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Becoming a Plumbing Technician is the start towards your path as a licensed Plumber. 

Why We Love Skilled Trades

Skilled trades are where it’s at! Not everyone will need an architect or a lawyer in their life. But everyone, at some point, will need the skills of a trained plumber. When you have something everyone wants and needs, you're likely always in demand, and that could mean better job security.

Beyond that, having a career in the trades means you can call your own shots. You could earn a great living working for a reputable plumbing company in your local area to get some experience under your belt. You could then decide to start your own plumbing business down the road.

Something else to point out is that over the past few years we have seen a lot of new construction on homes. This is due in large part to the housing supply dwindling. Industry experts have agreed that we will continue to see new construction of single-family homes in the coming years. And all of these new homes will need qualified plumbers to install, maintain and repair the plumbing systems!

Just how fast is the plumbing profession growing?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (https://www.bls.gov/), employment of plumbers is projected to grow 5% over the next decade. This means roughly 50,000 jobs will become available each year over the next 10 years.

“Housing, home services, and construction continue to grow…Plumbing Technicians will play a vital role!”
