The trades are a great career for those who don't want to take out a bunch of loans for college. In plumbing, your Master Plumber pays YOU to learn, and you get cumulative licenses that will serve you for life. Plumbing is also an awesome career for those with college degrees who want to work with their hands and eventually become their own boss.
Welcome Shad, our newest plumbing apprentice!
When Shad makes it to Master Plumber, he can own his own business. But before then he'll spend years learning the whole system network of plumbing from the ground (literally) up! Shad comes to us fresh from a stint working at Skokomish Park in Washington state. Before that, he earned a Bachelor's degree and spent years in IT. He couldn't wait to get out from behind a desk and start working with his hands.
Meet Britanny - Apprentice for 1 year
When we met Bri, she was working as a manager at a storage facility, here in Round Rock. She was so hard working, honest and mechanically minded, we were eventually able to convince her to apprentice with us. She's been doing an awesome job working with the Master Plumber, learning from the best. Before long, she'll get her Tradesman license, then her Journeyman license, and then her Master's!
Meet Steve - Apprentice for 2.5 years
Steve also came to us from the IT world. He has a Bachelor's degree as well, and spent many years working for Dell and doing computer networking before deciding that he wanted to leave the desk chair behind and learn a new trade. He's been an invaluable asset to the team.
