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.
