Tell us if you had to go to trade school. How long?

How many hours or steps(1/2/3/4) before you become a journeyman?

What trade certificate do you have, plumbing, gas, oil, pipe fitter etc? How did you get them, exams, courses, or free in a cracker jack box?

What about your recent jobs, describe what you actually do and what type of building : houses, high rises, commercial building, institutional, oil refineries, paper mills etc.

Tell us about you, some funny plumbing jobs and or horror stories.

When someone starts posting we require them to have a proper intro. He didn't start posting 5 years ago. He started posting like 5 days ago.


If a plumber starts a reno and focks off, then comes back 5 years later to finish it and get a c.o. can he tell the inspector he should just pass him because the work was done 5 years ago?


How much have you been drinking this morning?

intro from 5 years ago..9-13-15, might be short, but he was welcomed by others none the less, if it took 5 years for you to catch it then its your fault, not his...sorry I cant agree with you this time...
I will say posts in 5 years isnt very active...but you missed the time limit for intro critic...

@ShtRnsdownhill All I'm asking is what we can learn more about him, I'd like to know his area of expertise and what kind of work he does. What's wrong with that??

nothing at all, but im just saying 5 years later after other veteran members gave him the thumbs up...is pushing the envelope just a little...yes his post count is nothing and he wasnt active..but the old saying..." you missed the boat" on intro expanding....there needs to be some point of just let it go after so much time has gone by...
if he expands on his intro great..if not then its too late..sometimes live and let live...just saying...
now if he was asking for all kinds of info that could be a different story, but he is giving advice and adding to threads..not taking away from them..
I dont know him from adam, so im not sticking up for him on that point..FYI
we are trying to get more people to become more active so this forum stays viable for a long time..

Okay yes I did sign up a long time ago and just recently decided to start becoming more active here.

To answer some of your questions...

I currently own/run the business with my father.

I went to trade school and completed all my bookwork/on the job hours. State of CT requires 8,000 on the job hours before I could sit for the test. This amounted to about 4 years.

I hold a P-2 license unlimited plumbing journeyman with the State of CT. I am going for my masters which is a P-1 license next February.

We do mostly residential work, nothing bigger then two family homes. Lots of new installs such as pressure tanks, well pumps and water treatment systems. But we also do small repair work all the way up to boilers and heaters.

Hope this clears some things up

Cool, welcome aboard (better late than never!)

We too have 8000 hours before we can become journeyman, it took me about 10 years because there wasn't enough work. Do you need to pass exams to become a business owner? What's the difference between your P-1 and P-2?

In a nutshell over here I had to pass 4 contractor/government exams before I was eligible and allowed to do the master plumber/contractor exam. Once that was complete then I was allowed to work on my own.

Welcome back! I miss my home state of Connecticut! However it’s not the same as when I left. I’m from the north and loved going fishing in the sound for Blues.

P2 is journeymans so you can work unsupervised under the business of a master which is a P1.
