Plumbing Technology Overview
Plumbing is an industry that will be around as long as humans continue to live and work within four walls. You can't build new houses, office buildings, shopping centers or hospitals without plumbing. Even in those economic downturns when new construction lags, people will still call on plumbers to repair broken pipes, unclog drains, clear sewers and install replacement garbage disposals.
Although considered a classic "blue collar" occupation, plumbing requires considerable training. A plumber needs to understand plumbing technology, hydraulics, pressure, mathematics, and the proper use of numerous specialty tools. And plumbers' pay levels tend to reflect this expertise -- as anyone who has paid a plumbing bill knows.
If plumbing is a career you'd like to pursue, Everest is a great place to start. Everest offers a Plumbing Technology career training program at some of its campuses across the United States.
