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
4. Does your state require passing a written exam or do you just give them
money and they issue a license?

probably take that long to get a good sample.
2.yes, Michigan has a journeyman and master levels.
3. Michigan has it's own code that incorporates and/or modifies the
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
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.
