Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Each year thousands of young people are graduating from high school in search of a career. Many of those young adults are just not cut out for college or the cost of college. For those young adults, becoming a plumber is a great way to start a career. In California, apprenticeship programs are available, as well as courses to become a plumbing contractor. While it may keep you from attending college, the process takes years of hard work and dedication to the trade, with a lot of learning from books as well.

The Plumbing Trade Is A Perfect Solution

The California State License Board (CSLB) they are the agency that administers testing for your contractor’s license. Plumbers are in high demand, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for plumbers will grow by 16% in the years to come. The plumbing trade is a perfect solution for someone who wants to enjoy variety in their workday. The Benefits Of Owning A Plumbing Business

To enjoy the benefit of owning your own plumbing business or earning more income as a plumber, you must get your contractor’s license. The first step in obtaining a contractor’s license requires a high school diploma or GED. Secondly, you’ll need to enroll in an apprenticeship program or trade school. One excellent benefit of an apprenticeship program is you can earn while you learn. While you may have some fees for licensing, you’ll have no long term school loan debt. City and community colleges also have courses in plumbing. This will not only teach you about becoming a plumber, but it will also provide you with the tools to complete your general education. Before testing for your license, you’ll need to complete four years in an apprenticeship program.

A Licensed Plumber Wears Many Hats

A licensed plumbing contractor is also associated with waste removal, water conservation, bidding, accounting, bookkeeping, and blueprint reading. The student will also learn the maintenance of gas, sewer and water lines, repairing sinks and toilets, as well as fuel gas piping and re-piping of buildings. Obtaining a C-36 plumbing license will require an individual to be tested in all areas of the trade, so staying well educated and up to speed in all areas of plumbing is essential.

The Most Successful Plumbing Companies

Once you obtain your license, you have reached the status of a C-36 plumbing contractor. You may now bid your own jobs, work as a subcontractor, and start your own plumbing company. The most successful plumbing companies are those that have leadership that keeps up with the latest technologies.  They also provide knowledge to their clients and are experts in the industry.
