Contact ACEF today to learn about our Apprenticeships in plumbing!

If you’re a hardworking, career-driven individual looking for an exciting new opportunity, you simply can’t go wrong with the skilled trades! There’s nothing wrong with high-tech jobs or retail careers, but they will never be able to offer the employment stability that comes with being a trade professional!

The Arkansas Construction Education Foundation has provided quality training in a variety of trades since 1994, and our apprenticeship programs include Electrical, Carpentry, HVAC, Electronic Systems Technology, Building Maintenance, and Industrial Maintenance. All of our apprenticeships are certified by the U.S. Department of Labor, and accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research. Contact us at any time, and we’ll help you take your first step toward your new career. Our mission is to produce a safe, competent, and professional workforce for contractors, and if you want to train as a plumber, we can help you get started.

Your plumbing apprenticeship will take four years to complete, and will consist of 640 hours of classroom instruction and 8,000 hours of on-the-job training. You’ll be trained by the most talented and experienced professionals in the industry, and we operate numerous training facilities throughout Arkansas, so you won’t have to travel far to complete your training. After you’ve completed the required training hours you’ll receive a “release to test,” and can submit an application to sit for the journeyman plumber’s exam.

We also provide job placement services to our graduates, but many already have job offers in hand with the companies that they trained with. Employers appreciate the professionalism and work ethic that our graduates have to offer, and are particularly happy that they’re ready to get to work on day one!

ACEF loves looking for people who like working with both their hands and their heads! If you have any questions about any of our programs, call us today at (501) 372-1590, or contact us online.
