Apprenticeship - Plumber
Apprenticeship is a structured training program leading to certification in the skilled trades. An apprenticeship combines supervised on-the-job training and experience with theoretical technical training. You find a job in your trade first and then enter into an apprenticeship agreement. You work 7,200 hours mentored by a certified journeyperson and gain the required skills and knowledge. You also take some technical courses. The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency administers the trades training and certification system. A plumber apprenticeship prepares apprentices to apply technical knowledge and skills to plan, assemble, install and repair piping and other equipment used to move, store or dispose of water, gas and sewage.
