Plumbing Apprenticeship Program

Plumbing is a journeyman profession that requires candidates to train under a licensed practitioner before being eligible to sit for licensure. Through our two-year Plumbing Apprenticeship Program, students add classroom hours to their total, accelerating the process by one year and enabling them to sit for their licensure exam within two years of entering the profession. 

The curriculum blends some hands-on application with a focus on the Kentucky Plumbing Code in a variety of scenarios both inside and outside of our facility. Enzweiler classes meet twice per week from 6 to 9 p.m. for 26 weeks per year, September to mid-April.
