How to Budget for Your Plumbing License Prep Program

A career as a plumber is rewarding not only because you love what you do, but also because this is a career field with a high income potential and demand. Before you can launch a career, you must get the right training. That training costs money. At Illinois Plumbing Consultants, we provide a program with exceptional value, but you still need to be able to budget for the course expenses. Here are some tips to help.

Plan Ahead for Tuition

First, be sure that you plan ahead. You will need to pay each semester’s tuition prior to starting your classes. A semester with Illinois Plumbing Consultants costs $700. You will find that our program costs at least $100 less than similar programs, but the reality is that it’s still an investment.


Consider working a part-time job and set aside a portion of your earnings until you have enough for your semester’s tuition. Determine how much you need to save per month to ensure that you have what you need when school starts, and insist on ensuring that savings happens.

Don’t Forget About Added Costs

Tuition is just one cost associated with our plumbing program. You’ll also need to buy a copy of the Illinois Plumbing Code for about $40. You’ll also need to invest in quality tools before you start the apprenticeship portion of your training. These tools will be an important part of your career, so don’t cut corners here. In addition to your tools and book costs, you will need to have the money available for your license before you can start your apprenticeship.

Preparing for the Plumbing License Prep Program

Your schooling is an expense, but it is an investment into your future. Illinois Plumbing Consultants makes it as affordable as possible to pursue a career as a plumber, but you will need to put in the effort to get the training. By planning ahead and establishing a budget, you’ll be ready for the upcoming semester. Learn more by filling out a contact form or giving us a call today at 866-608-9523!
