Big cheese a simple search of plumbing apprenticeship classes or schools in Florida will show that you are wrong. I took the plumbing apprenticeship school from 1996-2000 at south Florida state college, used to be south Florida community college. When Hurricane Andrew came, Florida raised there entire construction code including plumbing. You do not know what You are talking about, so do your self a favor and quit claiming to know about a plumbing license in Florida.

Where I was at I worked under a licensed plumber. The test was more like a contractors license then a plumbers license the company was call pelican plumbing of brevard county. Look it up. I'm preparing for my masters exam now in Texas why would I even want a Florida license when your state honors the Texas license. When you show me another state that requires eight years of in the field and classroom training hours then we will talk. Florida only requires a letter of recommendation and if I'm wrong tell me the name of the site who controls the plumbing board. Ares is the Texas Board of Plumbing Examiners look it up if think I'm playing about the training requirements.







...:no:..

they required me to prove (48) months of plumbing experience served under licensed plumbing contractors.

Last I heard, new applicants for licensure have to list individual jobs they worked on in addition to all the other work experience verification.

And unless your dad owns the shop... Good luck getting the one year foreman XP in the first four years. Apprentice -> journyman -> contractor
