Fuel Piping Licensing, Education & Exam Prep

A Fuel Piping License is available to those who wish to engage in the bidding or contracting of fuel piping work without obtaining a standard plumbing or Heating license. Fuel piping privileges are included in the Plumbing and Heating Group 1, 2, and 3 licenses, and do not require a separate examination for persons applying for or currently holding one or more of these licenses. For Fuel Distribution (PU) licenses, a separate examination is required. We currently do not offer exam prep for the Fuel Distribution exam.

For the North Carolina Fuel Piping exam, we offer a bundle with exam prep, the book for the exam, and additional services to help you obtain your license. All of our training is offered in an online self-paced format. Our exam prep is designed to help you pass your test the first time, and is backed with our no pass, no pay policy. All of our courses are available from almost any device, any time. We hope that you will make RocketCert your home to help you obtain your North Carolina Fuel Piping License.

Submit Application

In order to sit for the exam, you must submit the application for licensure to the state. It must include verified education and work experience as required by the state. Upon application approval, the applicant will receive written notification which will include instructions for scheduling the examination, which must be taken within thirty (30) days of the date of the notification letter.


After studying with RocketCert, you will be on your way to passing the required State exam(s) (see below). Pre-approval is required. Testing centers are setup throughout the State in larger cities.


After completing all the steps above, it will be time to apply through the NC State Board of Examiners of Plumbing, Heating, and Fire Sprinkler Contractors to obtain your North Carolina Fuel Piping License.

Which exam do I need to take?

NC Contractors must pass two examinations: the Fuel Piping Exam and the Business and Law exam. Business and Law is not required if the applicant holds an active contractor license with this Board and the applicant passed the Board’s Business and Law Exam after August, 2003.

Upon application approval, the applicant will receive instructions for scheduling the examination.
