Owensboro Community & Technical College is starting a new Plumbing FastTrack program this fall. FastTrack programs utilize an “earn-and-learn” model, providing students with opportunities to earn credentials quickly.

In addition to practical experiences, instruction is given in building codes and blueprint reading.

After an online introductory course, lab courses include Basic Plumbing Skills, Plumbing Principles, Plumbing Systems, and Rough-in of Plumbing Fixtures.

At the conclusion of the 12-month program the student will earn multiple certificates including: 1st Year Plumber Mechanic, Certified Backflow Tester, Finish Plumber, Service & Repair Plumber, Rough Plumber, 2nd Year Plumber Mechanic and Maintenance Plumber.

The courses prepare students for licensure and shadowing. The Plumbing FastTrack courses will be held on Monday evenings from 5-8 p.m. Students may work with a success coach on job placement opportunities. Classes begin on Aug. 16 in the Industry Innovation Center on OCTC’s Main Campus at 4800 New Hartford Road.
