Journeyman Training

As time goes on, some things stay the same in our trade, but other things change. As technology, equipment and codes continue to change, you need to keep up with the safest and most up-to-date procedures on the job. The Plumbers Local 1 Training Center has a qualified staff of journeymen instructors to help you get the job done effectively and efficiently. For journeymen who want to keep up to date on the latest materials, methods, products and codes, the Plumbers Local 1 Training Center offers a variety of advanced journeymen training courses. To accommodate the members’ work schedule, classes are offered in the evening at our state-of-the-art facility in Queens.

Under the direction of NYC Department of Education and U.A. certified instructors, the advanced training programs address subjects such as OSHA Safety, welding, code and theory, drafting & plan reading, field coordination, computer aided drafting(CAD), medical gas systems, N.Y. State certified backflow prevention, and residential fire suppression systems. As the Plumbing Industry continues to change, the Plumbers Local 1 Training Center will continue to respond with additional courses to address future demands of the industry. Our journeymen training courses create highly professional plumbers, who can deliver the expertise and productivity that our industry demands. This is one of the most important goals of the Plumbers Local 1 Trade Education Fund.

The journeyman course schedule has been severely limited due to COVID-19. An updated schedule will be posted as soon as it is available.
