Confused about the new TSBPE class requirements?

You do not need to take any classes to register as an Apprentice.

  1. If you have a drain cleaner or residential utility installer registration, you are required to take continuing education.
  2. Unless exempted, the 24hrs of training required for individuals wanting to take the Tradesman exam, is three separate classes - an OSHA 10hr class, an 8hr Residential (IRC) Code class and a 6hr continuing education class (the same class all the other license holders are taking) = 24hrs.
  3. Journeyman exam the 48hrs of training required for individuals wanting to take the Journeyman exam, is the same three separate classes required for the Tradesman, plus two additional classes - an 18hr Plumbing (IPC / UPC) Code class and a second 6hr continuing education class = 24hrs. These 24hrs plus the 24hrs of Tradesman classes you took = 48hrs.
  4. You do not have to take all your classes from the same provider, take the classes as you need them and in any order that you want - make sure you receive a certificate for each individual class you complete.
