The term Master Plumb Contractor is actually used as a generic term and is used to describe anyone who is a licensed plumber, but who is not necessarily a licensed contractor. In general, there are three levels of plumbers that can be considered as Master Plumb Contractor: licensed plumbers (PRC), licensed contractors (PRC/L) and certified plumbers (CPE). These three classifications are usually referred to as the master levels of plumb contractor because they are the highest level of the plumbing profession. When referring to the plumbing profession, a Master Plumber is actually a licensed contractor or plumber who holds Master Plumb Contractor License (MPL) and who is trained and certified to perform the plumbing repair work assigned to him/her by his/her contractors.
As an individual who is a Master Plumber, you are still eligible to register as an apprentice (CPE) of your chosen plumb contractor. If you are a plumb contractor, you may work as an apprentice with an existing contractor and can become his/her apprentice (CPE) after becoming a licensed plumber. The Master Plumber (CPE) is the highest level of plumber and is qualified to install, repair, or install the systems and appliances required in a building. The Master Plumber is qualified to work in the plumbing industry in other than private homes, apartments, and condos.
As a Drain Cleaner, you are the plumb contractor’s employee, and as such, you must be responsible for many tasks, such as maintaining the plumb, maintaining the equipment, making sure that everything is working properly, and supervising the work of others and performing some of the more complicated plumbing jobs. The Master Plumber should be able to explain to the plumb contractor’s contractor about the various plumbing repairs to be performed and the plumbing tools and equipment that are to be used. The plumbers should also be able to handle the installation and removal of drains, pipes and fittings. If the plumber fails to carry out any of these jobs correctly, the plumber will be given a letter of reprimand from the plumber’s employer and may also be expelled from the plumbing business.
