What is An Apprentice?

The State of Indiana defines an apprentice plumber as an individual “who is learning the plumbing trade; and is under the direction and immediate supervision of a licensed plumbing contractor or a licensed journeyman plumber.” Indiana dictates that the apprentice must be licensed to act as an apprentice plumber. In order to qualify to take the journeyman plumber examination the apprentice must provide evidence that the applicant has completed at least four years in an apprenticeship program approved by the State.
