GPI does NOT offer initial training. You must have at least three years primary field experience under the direct supervision of licensed plumber AND have an application on file with the State of Georgia to take the plumbing licensing exam.
Find a plumbing company in your general area, or in an area where you want to work, that is hiring apprentices. A quick Google search will usually get you the info you need.
As of October 17, 2022, the Licensing Board has gone to “OPEN TESTING”. There is no longer an April Exam, August Exam and December Exam. Once you get Board approval, you may register and schedule with AMP/PSI and take the exam whenever you want.
