Preparatory Plumbing Programs

This program prepares students for a plumbing apprenticeship, and it offers the basic knowledge and skills similar to parts of an apprentice’s first year of training. As a program graduate applying for an apprenticeship, you will be able to demonstrate your commitment to the trade, and will possess entry-level skills for a plumbing apprenticeship. This program also is appropriate for individuals interested in other piping trades. 

Career Outlook: State law requires that only properly licensed plumbers be permitted to install and repair plumbing systems in dwellings, structures and businesses, and these services are in demand. 

Career Pathway: This program features exploratory courses that count toward a credential. Contact an MATC advisor for information.
