Journey License

. I was happy to learn… To qualify to take the journeyman exam, you must have at least 8,000 hours of work experience in the trade or a combination of work experience and technical training that equals 8,000 hours. If you have a journeyman or master license in another state, you qualify to take the Texas journeyman exam. The journeyman exam has a written part and a hands-on part. The written part of the exam has multiple choice questions on the following topics: Waste and vent systems Water systems Natural gas systems Simple physics Cross-connections created by back siphonage and backflow Terms and definition Water heaters Law and board rules Questions come from: International Plumbing Code and International Fuel Gas Code, International Code Council, (703) 931-4533 Uniform Plumbing Code, International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, (800) 854-2766 The hands-on part of the exam is split in two parts as described below. The sanitary waste and vent installation portion will test your knowledge of proper planning, layout and installation of sanitary waste and vent systems. You will design the sanitary waste and vent system for a reduced scale two story building and perform the material "take-off", order the material and actually install the system on the reduced-scale two story building. The hands-on shop-work portion will test your knowledge and ability to properly use plumbing tools to measure, cut, prepare, assemble and install plumbing materials and recognize proper installations of water heaters. Journeyman plumber's exam fee: It will cost you $27 to take the journeyman exam. The fee you purchase a license and its duration will depend on when Board issues it to you.
