Plumber License Requirements: Everything You Need To Start Plus Specialty Certifications

Posted on September 29th, 2021

Plumber licenses and certifications are in high demand. Many states require a license for you to be able to work, but they may have different titles, training requirements, costs and application processes.

Plumber licenses can also vary depending on your experience level: Apprentice, Journeyman or Master Plumber. You may also have a specialization like pipefitter, steamfitter, sprinklerfitter, and pipelayer. These may require an additional license.
