What is a Master Plumber?
Becoming a plumber in Queensland is a rewarding career, and it comes with extensive training and on-the-job experience. In most cases, plumbers will take on a 4-year apprenticeship with a licensed plumber, during which time they gain firsthand experience in the field while also completing a Certificate III in Plumbing. Once the apprenticeship and Certificate have been completed, new plumbers can apply for a license that certifies them to perform plumbing work without supervision.
From there, becoming a master plumber is a matter of further education and training. Master plumbers are required to complete a few extra years on the job as well as a Certificate IV in Plumbing that includes extensive training on some of plumbing’s most complex jobs. The additional training creates plumbers that are equipped to tackle a wider range of plumbing work and incorporate new and improved technologies into their solutions.

"I needed a plumber on short notice on the weekend. James arrived quickly and detected the problem and addressed it in a very professional manner. he was very focused in his work and the result was outstanding. Thank you James."
"These guys were prompt when we called them with no hot water and a blocked drain. They were reliable, honest and took pride in their business. I called 5 local plumbers and they were the only ones who picked up and then made space for us as we needed urgent help. And in the following days, only one of the other plumbers called back. I was very impressed with their work and will definitely be going back to them with any future plumbing needs. Thank you for everything!"
