Help with survey!


I'm preparing a report on the licensing requirements of plumbers in each state. It seems as though, if the state has no requirements, then some jurisdictions within each state has its own requirements. Please answer these four questions. 1. What state do you work in? 2. Does your state require plumbers to be licensed? 3. What code does your state use? (International, BOCA, Uniform Plumbing,etc) 4. Does your state require passing a written exam or do you just give them money and they issue a license? Please feel free to post your answers until mid September as it will probably take that long to get a good sample. Thanks John

2.yes, Michigan has a journeyman and master levels.
3. Michigan has it's own code that incorporates and/or modifies the International Code.
4.The Michigan Dept. of Consumer and Industry Service requires showing proof of a three year apprenticeship with a Master plumber to be eligible to take the state test, which is a written and practical exam. After working for two years as a Journeyman you can apply with the state to take the master plumber exam, which consists of a written test, material take off exercise and interpretation of building drawings.     Additionally, if you want to work independently as a contractor, you will have to apply for and pass the Plumbing Contractor License Exam. With the State.
