What is Plumbing Technology?

Installing water supply and waste disposal systems in residential, commercial, and highly complex industrial sites is the focus of the plumbing program. 

In addition to practical experiences, instruction is given in laws and codes, blueprint reading, drawing, special equipment and other related areas.

Getting Started

What are my degree, diploma, and certificate options?

The diploma for Plumbing Technology will earn you one year of work experience towards your Journeyman Plumber license—you must first contact your program coordinator to initiate a request with the KY Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction on your behalf for that credit. The state of Kentucky requires two years of work experience to be eligible to become a Journeyman Plumber.

Progression in the Plumbing Technology program is contingent upon achievement of a grade "C" or better in each PLB and BRX course and maintenance of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average or better.
