What Is The Difference Between A Registered And Licensed Plumber?
Many people fail to distinguish between a registered and licensed plumber. A registered plumber is one that has completed his/her apprenticeship. It is a step below a licensed plumber, as a registered plumber will have to work under the supervision of one who is licensed. If you do not have a registration or a license, then you will face a serious fine by the state if you do start to practice.
How Long Does It Take To Become a Plumber?
Becoming a plumber doesn’t happen overnight. Like many trades in the building and construction industry, your journey begins with an apprenticeship with a registered professional, along with a class-based program such as the Certificate III.
Completing your certification in plumbing will usually take around 3-4 years to complete, depending on whether you study part-time or full time. Once you’ve completed your plumbing apprenticeship, you can start looking into other building and construction courses. After you have done a course/apprenticeship, you can then go on for state examinations for licensing.
Needless to say, all Fluid Plumber technicians are fully licensed, insured, and qualified. We also have decades of experience treating a variety of plumbing related issues.
