Local 777 Plumbers & Pipefitters
- Labor Unions
Currently apprentices attend class for a week at a time, six times a year (approximately every eight weeks) for five years. Classes run from 7:45 AM to 3:30 PM. Apprentice classes include OSHA plumbing, heating and cooling, welding certification, and medical gas certification and air conditioning/refrigeration courses. After the apprentice completes the five-year program they are then eligible to take their State of Connecticut Occupational License test. They will also earn 30 college credits towards an Associate Degree in Construction Supervision, which they may pursue through Local 777. Training is not only for the apprentice. Journeyperson upgrade training is also offered to our members. All training is free with the exception of books for both the apprentice and journeyperson.
