What to Expect in Plumbing Continuing Ed Classes

Posted on: January 6, 2014

In order to continue to operate as a licensed plumber, plumbers in the Chicagoland area are required to receive a certain number of continuing education hours every year. This training ensures that licensed plumbers maintain their skills and learn new methods and technology. A plumbers’ license expires once a year in Illinois, on May 1. Will you be up for renewal this year? If so, consider Illinois Plumbing Consultants for your plumber continuing education classes.

How Many Hours of Continuing Education Do Plumbers Need?

In order to apply to license renewal, plumbers must take four hours of continuing education classes each year. Approved sponsors like Illinois Plumbing Consultants offer several convenient dates for continuing education classes. We hold our plumbing continuing ed classes on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., so you can get the hours you need in one day without having to move your schedule around too much. Plumbers can register for continuing education classes by providing their employer’s name and plumber license number. The plumber license must also be presented on the day of the class.

Topics typically include drainage, plumbing fixtures, water supply and distribution, venting and traps. No matter what the course topic, plumbers can expect to learn about the latest technology, advanced plumbing techniques, changes in the plumbing industry and comprehensive information about plumbing codes. Like any other industry, methods and tools change with technology. With continuing education classes, plumbers stay up-to-date in the trade and develop excellence in the field.
