PLUMBING TECHNOLOGY

Plumbing Technology

Campbellsville University’s Plumbing Technology program is designed to prepare students for a career in the plumbing industry.

This 9-month program concentrates on basic fundamentals as well as a broad spectrum of skills in this diverse industry.

Fundamentals include:

  • Water Distribution Systems
  • Drain/Waste/Vent Systems
  • Septic Systems
  • Backflow Prevention
  • Gas Distribution Systems
  • National and Local Codes

Skills include:

  • Soldering
  • Pipefitting and Installation
  • Appliance and Fixture Installation
  • Troubleshooting and Repair
  • Blueprint Reading

In addition to learning the skills of the trade, students will be prepared to enter into, and navigate their way through, a career in plumbing.  They will learn how to write and maintain a resume; how to interview; and how to communicate with co-workers, management, and customers.

The Plumbing Technology program starts at zero and ends with students having the opportunity to earn the Kentucky Journeyman Plumber License. It is not necessary to have any experience to reach this goal – only the drive and determination to learn a skilled trade in high demand.
