Program / Admission Details

Program Description
The Plumbing Apprenticeship program satisfies the educational requirements to take the State Journeyman Plumber Exam. To complete the entire Apprentice Plumbing Program, an individual must be licensed through the State and work under the supervision of a licensed Journeyman Plumber. A basic assessment is required prior to enrolling. This program provides a solid understanding of the International Plumbing Code (IPC), its layout, and the requirements for different plumbing systems and parts of those systems. This program discusses the processes, parts, and risks involved with the various plumbing systems as well as the safety equipment and measures that are in place to protect plumbers and the public alike.
NOTE:The State of Utah requires plumbing apprentices to have 576 classroom hours and 8,000 on-the-job training hours to become licensed Journeyman Plumbers. Students also must pass the state Journeyman Plumber exam. Davis Technical College does not provide on-the-job training nor act as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals are responsible for finding their own employment. Davis Tech suggests that students work as licensed apprentice plumbers before beginning this program. All plumbers must register with the Utah State Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL).
