Do you need to go to college to be a Plumber or Electrician?

How would one typically get into these jobs? From my understanding no degree is required? So where would one learn the necessities?

College isn't necessary for learning either trade. Many people learn it from on-the-job training. However, many people also go to trade schools in order to become certified plumbers or electricians.

No, you just need training.

No, you don't. You might be able to get training at some community or vocational colleges, but many people simply go into apprenticeships.

No college degree is required to become a plumber, but to be an electrician you would probably need to have some sort of education in regard to wires and electricity. Best of Luck, Beach Girl 4646

Courses are usually offered at a community college. upon completion you usually earn a certificate and then become a licensed plumber or electrician.

you can go to a tech school if you really want to. My dad is a master plumber and he learned on the job, the only time he took any classes is when he was getting ready for his test. I think the same goes for electricians
