Fast track your career in the skilled trades with Sask Polytech's 17-week applied certificate program. Plumbers install, replace and maintain water and sewage systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Many are also licensed gas fitters.
The Plumbing and Pipefitting program provides the knowledge and skills you need for an entry level job. Your learning is practical and hands-on – and includes a two-week job placement that lets you test your skills in the real world.
Plumbing is a skilled trade. The more education and experience you get, the higher you can climb on the wage-earning ladder. A fourth-year journeyperson plumber can earn double the hourly wage of a first-year plumbing apprentice.
The Plumbing and Pipefitting applied certificate program is delivered at Sask Polytech campuses in Regina and Saskatoon. It is also available off campus through Continuing Education and regional colleges.
