    Talking Ohio

    If you live in Ohio, you should send a e-mail note to CASS or Rugged
    and ask them about what is involved.....

    I think that they both work in Kentucky and ohio too


    All you got to do in Indiana is show lots of butt crack
    and you have qualified for an apprentice liscense....

    if you claim that you have dated your sister, you automatically
    get placed in the second year advanced class....

    The way I hear it, the license doesn't matter over there because everything is now a contractor's license. $300 you get a book and an open book test, 10 hours of recurring study a year. Get bonded and you're an instant tradesmen without education.

    The handyman can do plumbing, pull permits just like an electrician can do hvac from what I hear.


    I got robbed out of getting my masters in ohio because of that bull****.
    Read what the end of this sentence means.

    Rugged ....

    I was wondering about that in our state, because a couple
    of losers I know claim to have their "contractors " lisc here......

    and it seemed impossible that they could actually pass
    a test

    In NY you have to have worked for a plumber for seven years then you need to pass two tests. Their is a written where you have to answer questions about code and design a couple systems. Then their is a practical where you have to solder pipe, joint ABS, pour a lead joint, do a lead wipe, and a few other things. The seven years is probably broken down into hours doing different jobs but I don't know the breakdown. Their are courses but they're voulentary and more suited for a homeowner looking to do a bath remodel. Basically you learn how to sweat pipe, joint PVC, etc. The only way to get into an apprenticeship program is to get into the union that does a five year school program before you get your journeyman's card which is worthless outside the union since such a thing doesn't exist in NYS.

    To get a contractor license good for builiding houses, doing extensions, etc all you need is to be bonded, go to the county office, pay $200 and you have your license for two years. The only thing you can't do under that license is plumbing, electric, HVAC, and chemical spraying. You can do construction, painting, insulation, landscaping, etc. Those limitations rarley stop contractors from doing plumbing and electric themselves to save a couple bucks though. I need to get a couple pictures of what the contractors did at my girlfriends house, jumping the pipe under and above the floor joists in the basement a couple times effectively creating a couple extra traps.
