More than Qualified
All members of Master Plumbers, Gasfitters & Drainlayers employ
licensed tradesmen. Becoming a licensed plumber (gasfitter or
drainlayer) involves completing a four year apprenticeship and
successfully passing the Plumbers, Gasfitters & Drainlayers Board
registration exam which is designed to ensure all licensed plumbers
are competent to undertake work.
Following this and after working for a further two years in the industry,
tradesmen can then sit a further exam to enable them to be certifying
plumbers who are able to supervise apprentices etc but also certify work
such as gasfitting. Master Plumbers membership is based on a company
owner either being a certifying tradesman or employing them.

Always ask to see the PGD Boards registration card which will prove
that the tradesman you wish to use is licensed.
