Is Our Plumbing License Prep Course For You?

Posted on: August 19, 2015

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook in plumbing is expected to grow at a faster-than-average rate through 2022. Plumbers typically learn through apprenticeship programs, which often allows beginners to obtain on-the-job training while also earning a wage. Upon completion of an apprenticeship program, a prospective plumber should be able to successfully pass the professional exam in Illinois, which opens the door to working as a journeyman. In deciding whether the program at Illinois Plumbing Consultants is right for you, you will want to consider some of the following issues.

Hands-On Training

As a plumber, you can expect to work with your hands on a daily basis. Your training program will allow you to have plenty of practical experience as you work on actual job sites. Plumbing careers can place you in both indoor and outdoor environments, meaning that you may face adverse weather situations at times. You may also deal with awkward positioning of your body as you access hard-to-reach areas. An individual who may not like some of these situations might want to consider carefully before enrolling in our program.

Flexibility in Working with Others

During your initial stages of learning, you will need to watch and listen carefully to your instructing plumber. You will also need to be able to transition to independent work, making decisions and completing jobs without direction. Your goal is to eventually be able to work on your own without any oversight, meaning that you will need to be self-motivated. Our license prep program is designed to equip you with a comprehensive range of skills needed in plumbing careers so that you can work successfully on your own. Flexibility is crucial in this profession.
