Other Helpful FAQs for Plumbers to Know
How much do plumbers make?
The U.S. News and World Report estimates that plumbing professionals earn between $40,000 to $71,000 a year.
How can plumbers get training?
Plumbers who are interested in receiving formal training can enroll in technical courses, which are available at local community colleges as well as trade institutions. The courses can cover anything from basic skills to advanced plumbing services. After completing the technical courses, plumbers can also opt for a plumbing apprenticeship, where they work alongside professionals to gain the necessary field experience. Last but not least, plumbers may choose to get licensed and certified — this shows you have the utmost dedication to your craft and are an expert in your field.
At Arlinghaus, we uphold a commitment to continuing education by providing plumbers, and other members of the company, with the necessary tools and training to help them excel in their roles. All new hires receive specialized training to strengthen and expand their current skill set, and we build on this knowledge with weekly training sessions.
Does Arlinghaus pay for plumbing licenses?
Arlinghaus will cover the costs of testing (upon successful completion), but we do not pay for the licensing costs.
Is plumbing a growing industry?
Yes! Plumbing is both a growing industry and an essential business. IBISWorld reports a 2.1 percent growth in the plumbing industry over the past five years (2015-2020), and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 4 percent industry growth from 2019 to 2029.
If numbers aren’t your cup of tea, all you have to do is look at this past year alone. When almost all businesses were asked to shut down to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, plumbing and HVAC companies remained open to provide essential services. Plumbing is essential to a healthy, comfortable life — it’s not going anywhere!
What level of education is required to become a plumber?
Plumbers must complete a high school diploma and retrieve a plumbing construction permit (license) from the Kentucky Division of Plumbing.
