Plumbing and Related Water Supply Programs

Plumbing is not one of those things that most people think about unless something goes wrong. But in fact, plumbing and effective waste management are two major hallmarks of modern civilization. Without proper plumbing, Rome never could have grown the way it did. 2000 years later, plumbing is no less important, and as such, those who have graduated from plumbing and related water supply services programs will always be in demand.W

Plumbing programs teach areas such as pipe laying, pipe repair, waste management, water filtration systems, electrical wiring, HVAC, basic architecture, structural engineering, and other related water supply services. Although some plumbers launch their careers after completing apprenticeships, receiving formal training at an accredited community college, vocational school, for university is far more practical, since the ensuing certification will be more widely accepted. Not to mention that receiving a two-year associate's degree is much more manageable than completing a four or five year apprenticeship.

Plumbing Job Outlook

According to the US Department of Labor, job opportunities for plumbers will be plentiful in the years to come. Demand for plumbers will keep pace with rising population growth, increased construction, and regular renovations. The median salary for plumbers in 2004 was just under $14 an hour, but as new buildings become increasingly complex and intricate, it's possible that this salary will grow substantially as a result. As an added bonus, many plumbers are self-employed, and choose not to work with outfits. As such, they can set their own hours, terms, and rates.
