Poster Content

PLUMBER

WAGES: $24.91 Hourly / $51,804 Annual*

Are you always tinkering with objects? Do people ask for your help with fixing mechanical things? Consider plumbing. Plumbers do much more than fix sinks and toilets in residential homes. They design and install piping systems that distribute water and remove waste from buildings, connecting to washers, sinks, heating and cooling systems. Plumbers have to be knowledgeable in the water distribution, blueprint reading, local ordinances and regulations, mathematics, mechanical drawing, physics, welding and soldering.


Education: Four to five years of classroom and on-the-job training.


Qualifications: In most parts of the United States, plumbers must be licensed before they may work independently, which requires 2 to 5 years of experience and passing a written examination.


PIPEFITTER

WAGES: $28.63 Hourly / $59,558 Annual*

Are you a little bit of a perfectionist? Do you enjoy reading plans and making something useful? Consider training to become a pipefitter. Pipefitters plan and install detailed pipe systems for commercial and industrial projects. These pipes may carry water, chemicals or gases to crucial building systems. Pipefitters use many tools to cut and bend pipes to exact specifications.


Education: Four to five years of classroom and on-the-job training.


Qualifications: Ability to solve complex problems using reasoning and advanced math. Pipefitters should also be familiar with general mechanics and how various materials fit together. Several states require pipefitters to be licensed.


SPRINKLER FITTER

WAGES: $28.40 Hourly / $59,072 Annual*

Are you a detail-oriented kind of person? Sprinkler fitters design, install, and test automatic fire protection sprinkler systems and components such as sprinklers, piping and valves. They have to know all of the local and nation sprinkler codes and make sure that everything lines up. In addition, sprinkler fitters must be able to read plans, perform calculations and have strong problem-solving skills.


Education: Four to five years of classroom and on-the-job training.
