The Plumbing/Welding Pre-Apprenticeship Program at Humber College is a tuition-free program (funded by the Government of Ontario) that is designed to help youth (ages 18-29) transition to an apprenticeship in the trade of Plumbing. This program seeks to address the barriers faced by participants who have tried to enter an apprenticeship but encountered issues around a lack of experience.

As a participant, you will receive Level 1 plumber apprenticeship training as well as exposure to the trade of Welding. It will provide you with the academic and practical experience required to succeed in the skilled trades. The program includes a paid work placement of 8 to 12 weeks (dependent on employer).

Cities and towns all over the country provide career opportunities in many sectors within the plumbing industry. You can work in new construction work in different sectors such as low-rise residential (housing), high-rise residential (condominiums), or commercial and industrial construction. You can install piping systems for the distribution and use of potable water and the safe removal of sanitary sewage. You could choose to do renovation and remodeling of existing plumbing systems or to repair and maintain these existing systems. Finally, you could choose to work in a related aspect of the plumbing industry such as system design, inspections or the plumbing material wholesale sector.

The addition of Welding, as a secondary trade, will also allow participants to broaden the scope of jobs they may be able to apply to, as many roles will require some basic welding knowledge in order to work on the various job sites involving new installs and repair of existing pipes
