Default Just joined from Illinois

Hi Everyone,

My name is Chris and I've been in the Illinois plumbing business for many years. I'm 6 months away from finishing my Apprenticeship. With my current employer we do residential and commercial, new construction and remodels. I'm hoping to take the plumbers license exam asap, not sure if I should take a course or if there are any practice exams for Illinois that are worth taking. If anyone has any advice or pointers I would appreciate it.

Welcome aboard!!



Given that it's illinois, you may have a practical exam that includes packing a joint in cast iron pipe. You should find out if there is a practical exam and if so practice all of the tasks they will ask of you.


Practice sizing piping and write down the formulas on note cards and have some flash them and ask you to name which formula they are and explain how to use them. Do this a couple days each week for a while and you should get them memorized.
