Career College: Virginia Plumbing Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in Virginia offering Plumbing degrees. Plumbers and Pipefitters also install, maintain, and repair many different types of pipe systems.

Virginia is a great state in which to go to college. Virginia college students enjoy close proximity to Washington, D.C., but also the opportunity to live in a more rural or suburban setting. Virginia is home to many colleges and universities. Virginia is still a surprisingly rural state, with tobacco as the primary cash crop. It was the birthplace of our nation, as the very first European settlement in North America was established at Jamestown in 1607. Virginia is a state of contrasts: not only do you have historic Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg, you also find the home of the Pentagon and of Mae East, the major East Coast internet hub. Whether you enjoy hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, wandering along its beaches, or enjoying a quiet dinner in its many fine restaurants, you are likely to find attending college in Virginia to be an excellent choice.

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.
