Iowa Plumbers

The State of Iowa is a state that is particularly stringent when it comes to becoming a plumber and operating within the state. The first step that you must take is to obtain your apprenticeship license. To get this, you must be enrolled in a nationally recognized apprenticeship program, have no felony convictions, and have your high school diploma or a GED. Your station in the program and your direct supervisor who is a journeyman or a master level plumber must be verified by the state.

To reach the journeyman level, you must present the state licensure board with proof that you have completed four years of training at the apprenticeship level through a nationally recognized apprenticeship program. Once this has been satisfactorily demonstrated, you must be able to pass the knowledge exams and still have a felony free record.

To become a master level plumber, you must be able to take and pass the master's level exam for the specific area needed. Master's level plumber in Iowa generally specialize in refrigeration, HVAC, or hydronic systems, as journeyman plumbers are not allowed to work on these systems without a master's level plumber supervising. That's what it takes to be a plumber in the State of Iowa.
