Typical Education

While college is not necessary to earn your plumbing license, the job requires a detailed amount of specialized training and knowledge. Both can be acquired through trade school, community college, or a learn-while-you-earn apprenticeship and classroom attendance. You can work towards becoming a manager or supervisor, and even own your own company. With a college degree, you can take your plumbing career even farther with opportunities in computer-aided design (CAD), building information modeling (BIM), and project management.

HVACR professionals also do not need a four-year college degree, but do require technical training and apprenticeship work to become licensed. They’ll learn thermodynamics, electrical systems, mechanical skills, and more. An HVAC professional can also specialize in an area, such as gas heating, heat pumps, air conditioning, and so forth.
