Plumbing Class

 

Northern's innovative plumbing degree is...

the only one of its kind in the state, and is broadly supported by Montana's plumbing industry.  Graduates enter one of the largest and highest paid construction industries in the country (1.5 million people), and play an important role in keeping our water clean.

The plumbing industry is...

diverse.  Plumbers play an important role in urban development and making it possible for people to live in any climate.  They are also vital contributors to Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and construction projects.

Northern's plumbing program offers...

plumbing apprentices the opportunity to learn in hands-on courses, and covers a major portion of the academic requirements of an apprenticeship.  As a result, the time spent in the classroom can be applied toward the total number of apprenticeship hours and graduates are prepared to start their career with a firm foundation of knowledge and skill.

Career Outlook for Plumbers

Earning a degree from the plumbing school at Montana State University-Northern grants you access to one of the state's largest and highest paid construction careers.
