Pennsylvania Plumbers

Pennsylvania is one of those rare states that has no official state requirement in the licensing of plumbers. Each community has their own requirements, however, so you will want to make sure that you are checking with each municipality in which you work to make sure you are legally working.

You will, however, need experience to work as a plumber within the state. In order to accomplish this, the best means is to successfully complete an apprenticeship through your local plumber's union. If you have a license and are moving into Pennsylvania from another state, then you may simply wish to contact the local union to join them.

Because there are no specific licensing requirements, it is a good idea to carry some sort of bond and liability insurance as there are added risks to operating without a license. If you have any questions about what you need to do to become a plumber in your municipality, be sure to contact local government officials to request the local qualifications.
