Plumber Licensing, Education & Exam Prep

If you wish to engage in plumbing work in the State of Kansas, you must first obtain a license. However, plumbers are not required to obtain a license from the state. Instead, you are required to obtain a license through your local city, county, or jurisdiction.

At RocketCert, we offer industry leading exam prep to help you pass your exam on the first try. In addition, we stock the references that you need and can use during the exam. All of our training is available online to help you achieve your goal of obtaining a Kansas Journeyman/ Master Plumber License.

How do I obtain a license?

In Kansas, licenses are administered on a county level and not a state level. Contact your local licensing board to submit an application.

Most counties require plumbers to complete continuing education to renew their licenses. The required topics and number of hours vary between counties. Check with your local licensing authority for the most accurate information regarding continuing education. Reciprocity agreements exist between many counties in Kansas. Contact your local city, county, or jurisdiction to find out where your license has reciprocity agreements.

With RocketCert, our education is written by a combination of professional educators and industry professionals. We pride ourselves on providing industry leading customer service. Also, if you find a better original price on any online course that we offer, we will beat it by 10%.
