Plumbers install, maintain, and repair different types of pipe systems. These pipe systems carry water, dispose of waste, supply gas to ovens, or heat and cool buildings. Other systems, such as those in power plants, carry the steam that powers huge turbines.

Master plumbers on construction jobs may be involved with developing blueprints that show where all the pipes and fixtures will go, they may even work at manufacturing plants to help move acids, gasses, and waste by-products through the production process.  Their input helps ensure that a structure’s plumbing meets building codes, stays within budget, and works well with the location of other features, such as electrical wires.

Plumbers install and repair water, drainage, and gas pipes in homes, businesses, and factories. They install and repair large water lines, such as those that supply water to buildings, and smaller ones, including ones that supply water to refrigerators. Plumbers also install plumbing fixtures—bathtubs, showers, sinks, and toilets—and appliances such as dishwashers, garbage disposals, and water heaters.

The MTECH Plumbing Apprenticeship Program prepares students to become certified Journeyman Plumbers. The State of Utah requires plumbing apprentices to have 576 school hours and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training to sit for the state journeyman exam. This is a 720-hour accredited course of study that prepares students for the rigors of state testing and fulfills the State’s educational requirement. It is designed to complement the on-the-job training apprentices receive through their employer, as they work alongside experienced plumbers in the field.

MTECH does not provide on-the-job training, nor act as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals are responsible for finding their own employment. All plumbers must register with the Utah State Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL). For questions about registering as an apprentice or other state requirements contact DOPL at (801) 530- 6628.

Evening Classes: Evening classes are open to adults who are presently employed as plumbing apprentices. High school students are NOT eligible to register for evening classes. Adult students who are not employed in the plumbing field will be allowed to enroll in evening classes two business days prior to the start of class if there are seats available. They may also enroll in a daytime class. New plumbing apprenticeship students will not be able to register for evening classes until employer information is provided to the school. Contact Student Services at 801-753-6282 to report your employer information and request that the registration block be removed from your account.
Accelerated Classes: Adult and high school seniors are eligible to register for daytime accelerated classes. There is no employment prerequisite for daytime classes, however, students must be employed as a plumbing apprentice prior to the start of third year classes.

*Note: Only first and second year classes are offered during the day. Daytime students will have to move to evening classes for 3rd and 4th year instruction.

Registration for the 2022-2023 school year opens July 15, 2022 at 8:00 am online on the MTECH Registration Portal and remains open until classes are full. It is recommended to create your MTECH Student Portal account in advance.

You are expected to be employed within the industry by the start of your 2nd year in the program. Our daytime plumbing classes are open to high school Seniors and adults who are not yet employed in the industry. You must complete all admissions requirements.
