About Area II Plumbers Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee


Plumbing Apprenticeship OpportunitiesWho We Are:

We are the plumbing apprenticeship program for the Oregon counties of Benton, Gilliam, Hood River, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Polk, Sherman, Wasco, and the south one-half of Yamhill.

Who Can Apply for Apprenticeship:

Area II Plumbers JATC allows any individual to apply for apprenticeship during openings – as long as they meet our minimum qualifications. The minimum qualifications for Area II Plumbers JATC are (1) the applicant must be 18 years of age and (2) the applicant must have a G.E.D. or a high school diploma. Veterans of the United States Military are able to apply and enter the apprenticeship at any time as long as they meet the minimum qualifications mentioned above and were honorably discharged within the last 24 months. We strongly encourage those who would not normally consider a plumbing career to apply.  Plumbing is a great career for women!

Who Governs Area II Plumbers JATC

We are governed by State of Oregon approved Standards and Policies & Procedures. Though we are an independent non-profit apprenticeship program, we are required by law to strictly adhere to our Policies, Procedures, and Standards – as well as all applicable state and federal laws.

In addition, the apprenticeship is run by the Area II Plumbers JATC committee – a group of dedicated plumbers that graciously donate their time, wisdom and efforts to developing and preparing apprentices for their careers as Journeyman Plumbers.

Plumbing businesses (Training Agents) in our geographical area participate in our program to invest in the on-the-job training process to develop well-trained plumbing journeymen.
