PLMB 150 - Plumber Practicum

This is an unpaid work practicum which will be coordinated by Trades Staff and supervised by the employer and instructor. In this time, students will be exposed to operating terminology and become involved with the daily routine and duties performed by a Plumber. Practicum placements will be arranged only upon recommendation of the Instructor and efforts will be made to provide placements in line with student preferences. Employers will be requested to provide a variety of tasks in line with the student's learning objectives. If a practicum placement with an actual employer cannot be offered, students will complete their practicum in the Northern Lights College lab under supervision of their Instructor. Students may also have the opportunity to work on the plumbing requirements of the Enhanced Carpentry Foundation Program's residential construction project.
