The plumbing apprenticeship courses are designed for apprentices that are currently working in the plumbing trade. You will need to bring in a copy of your apprentice card the first night of school for Plumbing Tiers II, III, IV & V.  Plumbing Tier I students can attend without an apprentice card (it is strongly recommended to obtain an apprentice card as soon as possible) but will need to have an apprentice card before they can begin Tier II.  The courses will prepare you to sit for the Massachusetts State Examination for the Journeyman Plumbing License.
