Johnny provides quality training and continuing education classes at affordable prices.
If you need a class at a different time than is scheduled please contact Johnny to see if other arrangements can be made.
As of February 1, 2010, the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners requires 24 hours of training to qualify for the Tradesman Exam and 48 hours to qualify for the Journeyman Exam.
The first 24 hours includes 8 hours residential plumbing code, 10 hours of OSHA, and 6 hours Continuing Education.
The second 24 hours include 18 hours plumbing code, and 6 hours Continuing Education.
Effective immediately and until further notice, the TSBPE will accept Continuing Professional Education (CPE) correspondence and virtual courses in lieu of class room courses to meet the training requirements for the Tradesman Plumber Limited 24-hour training courses and will eliminate the 2nd classroom CPE (48 hours) requirement for the Journeyman examination.
With this mandate from the TSBPE you will only be required to have 42 hours of training at this time.
