BENEFITS TO A DOL APPROVED PROGRAM:

A DOL Apprentice certification is required when applying classroom hours towards the TSBPE Journeyman license. It is also required for most construction projects utilizing Federal funds. Completion of a DOL approved program reduces the Texas State Board Plumbing Examiners (TSBPE) required OJL hours for an Apprentice applying for the Journeyman exam from 8000 hours to 7500 hours. Completion of a DOL approved program reduces the TSBPE required waiting time for a Journeyman applying for the Master Plumbing exam from 4 years to 1 year. Upon completion of the 4 year apprenticeship program, all TSBPE required OSHA hours, CODE hours and Continuing ED hours are satisfied for journeyman testing.
