Tuition for Illinois Plumbing License Prep Program Chicagoland, IL

Entering a plumber license prep program is a great way to build security for your future. During your program, you’ll receive the hands-on training and book knowledge that you need to succeed in this field. As you weigh your training program options, carefully evaluate costs. At Illinois Plumbing Consultants (IPC), we offer a high-quality program at a great price.

Budgeting for Your Plumbing License Prep Program

As with any educational program, you’ll need to plan ahead so that you can budget for your training needs. We require that all tuition be paid prior to the first class of each semester. We offer classes in Crystal Lake, IL in the fall and spring. You can pay by semester or yearly with the costs as follows:

  • $700 per semester
  • $1,300 per year

On average, our courses cost at least $100 less than comparable courses offered at other technical and community colleges in Illinois.

*Discounted tuition may apply to groups of 3 or more. Please call for details.

Books, Tools and Materials

In addition to paying your tuition, you’ll need to buy a copy of the Illinois Plumbing Code, which currently costs $40. It’s also important that you own all the tools necessary to complete your plumbing apprenticeship program. Invest in good tools now as you will be using them throughout your career.  >> See books here

State Licensing

To hold a plumber apprenticeship, you must first acquire a sponsor. A sponsor is required in order for your time as a student to be counted towards an apprenticeship. Illinois Plumbing Consultants does not act as a sponsor. (Note that you are always welcome to  take classes without a sponsor just to learn, but they will not count towards your four years.) Next, you will need to have a license from the state. This license costs $50. In order to apply, you must be sponsored by a bonded, licensed plumber.
