The good news is that nearly anyone can learn to become a plumber. Here are a few tips to get you started on this potentially lucrative and rewarding career.

As we mentioned earlier, there is a lot to learn when it comes to plumbing. From fixing leaks and replacing parts to repairing damaged, missing, or failing hardware, learning the trade begins with education. The good news is, there is an abundance of programs, vocational schools, and opportunities available. In most cases, plumbers will also go through some type of apprenticeship program and training, where they will get hands-on experience. Last but not least, many states also require licensing. Don’t worry, most plumbing programs or schools are already set up to help students get their license, and some even have job placement opportunities. Good luck with your schooling and training, and happy plumbing.
