TOTAL TUITION FOR EACH COURSE:
   Our Plumbing Apprentice courses are designed for the working plumbing apprentice who wishes to fulfill the educational requirements to earn his or her Journeyman’s Plumbing License. Each course consists of 160 hours total, 150 hours plus a minimum of 6 hours of plumbing safety. Students must have the previous year completed, per the state of NH, to continue into the next level course.
    Each course starts up in September and runs one night a week for the forty weeks, unless taking the accelerated course. This allows the students to slowly gain the knowledge and skills needed in the field, while achieving the hours needed for licensing. Our classes only provide the educational hours; student will have to be working with a licensed Plumber to achieve the field time needed. Tuition for each is the $1400. Books do carry over from course to course; if the student does not have them for one reason or an other,  we have them available for purchase in our office.

Plumbing Licensing Questions

​​
"How do I become a New Hampshire licensed Plumber?"

New technicians must first become an Apprentice. The state requires that new technicians must have an Apprentice card to be able to assist in the installation of plumbing and drainage. This card also starts the documentation of the field hours needed for the licensing process.
 
"How do I get an Apprentice card?"

An Apprentice needs supervision of a licensed professional while working. When a new technician starts working for a company, the company should have some one to take on the responsibilities of becoming the apprentice's supervisor. To do so, both will need to fill out the states application and submit it to the Department of safety, division of Fire Safety.  All the application requirements and fees must be included, as described on the first page of the application packet.
 
Plumbing Apprenticeship Requirements:
  • 8000 hours of field time (about 4 years of work experience)
  • At least 150 hours of classroom hours for every year
  • OSHA 10 hour construction certification
  • Plumbers' Journeyman exam

   
  • Apprentice Card

  • Field Requirements

  • Educational Requirements

  • State Exam
    
"I already have a plumbing license from out of state, how do I get a New Hampshire one?"

The technician will have to call and talk with the NH Department of Safety, Division of Fire Safety office of the State Fire Marshal, and they will determine if the license is reciprocal in the state of NH. If it is, the technician will most likely have to take the NH State exam.

"How do I renew my New Hampshire license?"

   
The NH Plumbing license expires in two years and on the last day of the birthday month of the license holder.  The technician will need to have a total of six hours of continuing education, 2 three hour code classes.  The technician will then turn in a copy of the certificates, the renewal form and renewal fee to the state.

Our facility utilizes the Professional Plumbing Seminars to host the NH Plumbing continuing education. They come to our facility every other Saturday each month. For their dates and tuition rates please click below for their website.

"What do I need for my MA License Renewal?"

   
Like the State of NH, MA's License is on a two year cycle.  Unlike NH, they renewal date is set for all technicians to renew on the same date. 

Each year the state of MA issues a new code session, these sessions are numbered for easy recognition. Every other year ALL Plumbers (and Gasfitters) are required to renew their licensing by May 1st. For gasfitters, each session is 6 hours long; totaling out to 12 hours per renewal. 

The next renewal date is May 1st 2018. The sessions required for this renewal is Session 9 and Session 10.

Our MA Renewal classes are set up to run every other month for the first session of the renewal cycle and then every month from January to April for the second session of the renewal. See our Continuing Education page for course details!  
"Do I need both sessions for my first renewal, even if I just got it?"


The short answer is no, you do not need to do either session to renew for the first time. 

According to the MA Board of State Examiners of Plumbing and Gas Fitting CMR 248, under section 11.04: Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) Requirements for Master and Journeymen Plumbers, Master and Journeyman Gasfitters and for Undiluted Liquefied Petroleum Gas Installers, there are several exemptions of the MCE. 

Number 4 states "The licensee was issued their license for the first time during the current renewal cycle. However, this exemption shall not relieve a journeyman plumber or gas fitter from the continuing education requirement during a renewal cycle in which they obtain a master's license;" 
Basically stating that a new licensee can skip these requirements only during the first renewal process, but will not be exempt if it is a Masters license because the licensee had a Journeyman's license prior to upgrading.

If you choose to skip these requirments you still need to process the paperwork to renew your license. The State of MA should mail out a renewal letter prior to the May renewal date. 
If you do not recieve a renewal letter prior to the May renewal date, you will need to contact the state and make sure they have the correct mailing address.
