Students in the Plumbing Program receive training in rough and finish plumbing installations in residential, commercial, and industrial locations, as well as prevention maintenance. The curriculum focuses on an overview of the plumbing trade license regulations and plumbing code regulations of the industry.

The 1,500 hours of training plus 300 hours of classroom instruction that students receive in this program are applied toward the apprentice hours needed to become a licensed plumber. Juniors and Seniors in the Plumbing Program practice their skills by completing all aspects of residential plumbing for Keefe Regional Technical School’s annual house-building project.

● Install, repair and maintain piping systems and fixtures according to state codes
● Design and install gas, water, drainage and heating systems for the house building
